Emmanuel Ofosu Yeboah of was born severely disabled in Ghana, where the disabled are expected to sit on the roadside and beg for change. Emmanuel, instead, participated in sports at his school (in spite of massive prejudices against the disabled in his country), and shined shoes to pay his mother's medical bills. After his mother died of illness, Emmanuel asks the Challenged Athletes Foundation for a bicycle so he can show his countrymen what disabled individuals are capable of. After he got his bicycle, Emmanuel rode it with his single leg 380 miles across his country to raise funds and awareness for handicapped children in his country. "Emmanuel's Gift" is a documentary about his life narrated by Oprah Winfrey.
