RB062 The Boy Who Wouldn't Quit

Our webcast of Ranger Bill
for the week of Jan. 14, 2017 is
The Boy Who wouldn't Quit

Young Norman hurts his back when he falls on a rock while playing football. Surgery doesn't completely fix the damage to Norman's back. The lad is left unable walk. He must use a wheel chair or crutches to get around. Norm's dad Al is afraid of anything that might make Norman's injury any worse. In spite of his problem, Norman is a happy boy with a tremendous need to challenge himself. Norm won't let his condition or his dad keep him down.
Norm wants to join scouts and participate fully in all the activities. But he can't convince his dad. Bill takes an interest in Norman and wants to help him in scouting. To advance in scouts, Norm will have to hike five miles, learn to swim, and more. Norm will need Bill's help to attempt these challenges and convince Al let his son try. Will Bill be able to help Norm overcome his handicap and Al overcome his fears?
