Video: The Mighty Finn –– Finding a Connection in the Outdoors

If you’re about to watch this video, be prepared to be inspired and touched. It features Ethan Street, who manages an REI store in Cleveland, Ohio. Ethan has a son named Finn who was born with cerebral palsy. That affliction has left Finn unable to talk, walk, or take care of himself, but it hasn’t stopped him from connecting with his dad on their outdoor adventures. Ethan takes Finn –– and the rest of the family –– on hikes in the woods, where they find peace, serenity, and some quality time together. If this clip isn’t a testament to the power of what the outdoors can deliver, I don’t know what is. It’s a fantastic story that is fulfilling in so many ways.
