Students Create Custom Hulk Costume For Child With Cerebral Palsy

For one four-year-old boy with cerebral palsy, this Halloween will be different because of the art and robotics students at Penn High School in Mishawaka, Indiana.

Isabella Costa and Michael Garcia were part of the foam sculpture team building a Hulk costume that fits over Zephan's wheelchair. Zephan really loves the Hulk. But for Costa, it's personal because her sister has cerebral palsy.

"It's a very good opportunity that I wish my sister also had. So it's just nice to see other families get this gift," she said.

Saturday, the students presented the Cantu family with Zephan's costume.

"I think somebody seeing him in something like this, a big costume that's really noticeable, they're gonna wanna say something to him," Leeann said.

Building a Hulk Jeep is pretty great. But helping a four-year-old feel special and noticed and accepted -- that's the real superpower.
