QB fulfills 4th grade promise, takes girl with Down syndrome to prom

When Ben Moser was in fourth grade, he made a promise. He told his mom that someday he would ask his friend Mary to the prom.

Mary Lapkowicz has Down syndrome, and according to a moving story about their friendship in The Patriot-News, she and Moser have long shared a special bond.


The teens no longer attend the same school, but that didnít stop Moser, a quarterback on the football team at Susquehanna Township High School in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, from fulfilling his childhood vow. On Friday, the 17-year-olds attended Moserís prom together.

As news of their prom date went viral on Reddit this weekend, netizens celebrated the friendship that Lapkowicz and Moser share.
