BOYNTON BEACH, Fla.  — Thursday was an inspiring night for an inspiring child.

Aamir, 7, received a "magical" upgrade to help him to get around.

Aamir was presented with a custom-made wheelchair at the Joe Dimaggio Children's Hospital Magic Wheels event at Barrier Free Park in Boynton Beach.

The message was all about inclusion. More than 30 vendors took part on the event.

Aamir will put his new wheels to the test when he leads the annual "Barrier Free" 5K race on Saturday.
