ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. -- A visually-impaired 10-year-old Orange County boy is on his way to a prestigious Braille-reading competition.

Ton Pham is one of 12 kids nationwide to qualify for the Braille Challenge Finals in Los Angeles.

The Princeton Elementary School student's family didn't have the $2,500 he needed to attend.

Because of the generosity of the community after WFTV first reported on the story, he has the money to go and compete.
