Good News: Five-Year-Old Double Amputee Raises Over $1M For Hospital

A five-year-old double amputee Tony Hudgell from the U.K. The boy was walking on his prosthetics to raise money for the hospital that treats him after being inspired by Captain Tom Moore, a 100-year-old World War II veteran who raised more than $40-million for the U.K.’s National Health Service by walking 100 laps in his backyard.

Well, young Tony finished his 10k and has raised more than $1.2-million so far. He also got a special shout out from his inspiration, Captain Tom, who congratulated him on his accomplishment in avideo. And Tony isn’t finished yet. He still plans to keep walking every day and donations are still rolling in.

"As a family, we are all incredibly proud at what Tony has achieved," says his father, Mark Hudgell. "The level of donation and the improvement in his walking over the past 26 days has blown away all expectations."
