TO INSPIRE IS BACK. We may have found one of the most inspirational stories in all of sports.

At the age of 14, a confident multitalented athlete (Nick Mayhugh) suffered a seziure and was diagnosed with cerebral palsy. Despite being told by Doctors that he would never play soccer again, Nick set out on a journey to prove them wrong while struggling with being fully accepted as disabled. Since being told that he would never be able to play sports again, Nick has won 3 gold medals, 1 silver, shattered 2 world record in track and was named Team USA Soccer player of the year.

In addition to his athletic accomplishments, Nick is also a motivational speaker and advocate for disability rights. He uses his platform to inspire others to pursue their passions and to challenge societal norms around disability. Through his determination and resilience, Nick has proven that anything is possible with hard work and perseverance.
