Focus: Hope and motivation. ABC30 profiles kids who met challenges and found a way to overcome these obstacles. Their stories can inspire others facing similar roadblocks and give them hope during tough times.

Stories:

  • The kid who lost 55 pounds and isn't done yet!
  • The boy who lost a foot and is now playing water polo and on the swim team.
  • A young man abused by his parents and in the foster care system, gets a new family and named a Student of Promise at Clovis Unified.
  • Art students take over an entire museum with a 3D exhibit depicting the struggles of undocumented immigrants.
  • From dropout to mentor! The program giving one young man and others a second chance at an education and vocational training.
  • The 9 year old girl credited with saving the Chaffee Zoo. We catch up with Angel Arellano. She's 18 and headed to college.
