Found this on Jeff Ament's Army Facebook page:

This Mom, with the help of a Physiotherapist and a Psychologist, helped her son with cerebral palsy realize a dream.  Here's the story translated from Portuguese:

 

"Because all children have the right to try and have fun . This duo in the video is @laucpatron and his son John, 7, who has cerebral palsy. John's dream was to skate and he was able to do it with the help of @skate_anima See what an amazing story: . "The project is run by two guys @danielpaniagua_ and @stevan_pinto who couldn't stand still in the dream of another young girl with cerebral palsy. She wanted the same thing as Joao: skateboarding. And the two were restless thinking the How absurd this structure that makes children and young people can not dream, no matter who they are. . The two, a physiotherapist and a psychologist, love skateboarding, and they thought it was only fair that all children could have a chance to love too. So they invented, built, found a way and since then realized the dreams of many people ❤-- . The video of the first time João was with them ended up on an important international skate platform, and so we are transforming what is normal, what belongs, who belongs, and what is possible "

A parenting win for sure.  The look on that kid's face is priceless. Damn, I hate it when I get dust in my eyes....
