It was a very special day for a boy scout and patient at Valley Children’s Hospital. Liam Niewohner is a boy scout and has been a patient of Children’s Hospital since he was a newborn.
“I was over at Boy Scout camp, when I was there I had to use a wheelchair because I had juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, and I got stuck on everything, rocks, bridge, curb,” said Liam Niewohner.
He was also diagnosed with a mild form of cerebral palsy. He wanted to create something for his eagle scout service project at Valley Children’s Hospital, so Niewohner pitched his idea of building a mobility course to the adaptive sports program. A year later, his wish came true and the mobility course was built next to the playground at Valley Children’s, where the community congratulated him at the ribbon cutting.
