Christopher Court - The Pinewood Derby

Christopher Court with his Pinewood Derby trophy

The Pinewood Derby

As previously mentioned Chris had been working hard on his Pinewood Derby car prior to getting sick and the Scout Master and his sons finished the car for him.  Chris really wanted to be there to see his car race.  He dressed in his class A uniform and had his leg brace on and was so excited.  Everyone gave him the warmest welcome when he arrived.  Even though he was having trouble walking, he managed to load his car onto the track and then walk down to the finish line to see it race.  Chris' car came second and he received a trophy.  He carried that trophy around for days after.  He would even be clutching it while sitting on the toilet!
