Rumble / Fascinating PeopleA five-year-old boy with spina bifida surprised his classmates when he walked at his preschool graduation in Marion, Ohio, on May 11. Footage shared to Facebook shows Blake Mompher using a walker to collect his diploma at Crosswood Preschool. According to his mom, Megan, walking at his graduation was a goal she had set for him at the beginning of the year. She told 10TV WBNS that Blake had been walking a little in the fall but had some medical complications. He started walking again three weeks ago, and worked with a therapist to get him ready for the big day. Credit: Team Blake via Storyful
