How One Dad Changed The Halloween Game For Kids In Wheelchairs

"Our mission is to build for every kiddo in a wheelchair," Ryan Weimer tells HuffPost Live.

When Keaton, a 10-year-old boy with muscular dystrophy, told his dad he wanted to be a pirate for Halloween in 2008, his wheelchair could have been a major obstacle to the costume. But his dad, Ryan Weimer, decided to take matters into his own hands and change the Halloween game for children in wheelchairs.

It was then that Weimer started Magic Wheelchair, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing epic Halloween costumes for children in wheelchairs. In the video above, watch Keaton, Weimer, and Daniel Saunders -- a family member who got involved in the company -- discuss what goes into making the elaborate costumes and how they hope to continue expanding the organization.
