Two 16-year-old boys from Dixon, Illinois, wanted to prove that anyone can be a superhero. To make their point, they busted out their spandex costumes and took to the streets to show strangers some kindness.





Turning a negative into a positive

A dangerous social game called “Nek Nomination” is becoming more and more popular in Europe and slowly catching on in the United States.

More than just basketball

Down syndrome never hindered Kevin Grow’s passion for basketball. He loves the game so much that he has managed his high school’s basketball team for the last four years.

The Philadelphia 76ers took notice—and gave Grow an even bigger surprise that would change his life forever.
