Boy with cerebral palsy leads cyclists from Longview

As the Push America bicycle riders continued their Journey of Hope from Longview to Shreveport on Friday morning, a young boy with cerebral palsy led the way.

Shortly before leaving the Fairfield Inn, the team declared Austin Oliver, 10, of Gary an honorary team member and followed his lead out of Longview. Austin rode on an Amtryke, a tricycle propelled by arm motion that also stimulates leg muscles.

Austin's grandmother, Sherry Bush, said he was diagnosed with cerebral palsy when he was about 3 months old.
