this was the video we watched during our retreat. i cried really hard when i watched this vid. especially the part when they finished the race together. since i didn't have the chance to have even conversation with my dad. i am really envious with this guy, even his father has an illness, he's still willing to do things with his son. :( i hope my dad is like that. :(
