As an infant, Josh Pobursky had both legs amputated and his parents were told that he would never be able to walk. 

But Josh grew up to prove doctors wrong by becoming a top little league hockey player. Christopher & The Hang On to the Dream Foundation recently surprised Josh with "his dream" by flying the talented 15 year old  and his family to Quebec so that Josh could meet his hero, NHL legend Patrick Roy.

"It was vicious... there were broken instruments all over the place.  It was just terrible," was how one of the faculty members at The Detroit H.S. for the Fine and Performing Arts described the scene when students came to school one morning to find that their band room was hit by vandals who destroyed almost every instrument in the room.


The Hang On to the Dream Foundation, in conjunction with
Yamaha of America, gave the school
nearly $5,000 in new instruments, and the students couldn't wait to put on a show with their new things!
