Watch: College Runner With Cerebral Palsy Gets Nike Contract After Crossing Finish Line

I am a huge fan of the philosophy “There are no boundaries in life.”

Justin Gallegos is a distance runner with Cerebral palsy. But he doesn’t let that define who he is or stop him from reaching his goals! He is currently enrolled at The University of Oregon and a junior and member of the university’s cross country team.

During a recent race, Justin crossed the finish line, but this was different. He noticed there was a camera crew and people from Nike. That’s when Justin realized his dreams were about to come true!

Just a heads up, you will need a box of tissues as you learn the amazing story of Justin Gallegos, Nike’s first professional athlete with cerebral palsy!
