This is the amazing story of 10-year-old Tobias Bass and his older brother Titus. Tobias is running in a 5k tonight and wanted his brother, who suffers from cerebral palsy, to run with him. He wrote a letter to News 9 Oklahoma asking for help in obtaining a jogger. It is the most heart wrenching thing ever.

Screencaps via Uproxx:

“I can be the legs for more than one kid.” I mean, wow, just wow. We need more Tobias Bass’s in this world. This isn’t just about his brother, this is about people out there who don’t have the same opportunities as others. This is about helping a friend, helping a neighbor, helping a complete stranger in need.
