Everyone is rooting for the fourth-grader at Lily Lake Elementary School, where they call him a neighborhood hero.

Also, as he was diagnosed with autism last year, the challenges are measurable, but the commitment is far greater.
“He wasn’t in a wheelchair, he was using prosthetics on his lower legs, which were too big for us.”
“It was an incredible experience. We went on stage to raise money and awareness. Wrist type Foundation which is a non-profit fund raising fund to provide humanitarian work to those poor countries and our country at present.
“It was an amazing experience to do this in NY and be a part of this community. And watch our son walk the runway among 27 other superheroes.”
