  • Gliding Stars of Findlay
    • Inspiring documentary following one Star's first year with the Gliding Stars of Findlay. Jackson Doll is nine years old and has never had a play date or gone to a birthday party. His family has never seen him play a sport or even make a friend.
    • www.youtube.com/watch?v=NxwFeF9yzhI
    • What would you do if your child couldn't cope with the world? Would you be able to push them to their potential even if you knew it was causing them distress? Go Jackson Doll is the story of a program that challenges special needs children to realize their potential through an unlikely outlet: ice skating. It's also the story of one brave family who would do whatever necessary to see their son succeed in a world he has trouble even comprehending.
