First Nike professional athlete with cerebral palsy

Justin Gallegos recently became the first person with cerebral palsy to become a Nike professional athlete.

Gallegos has made good on challenges his entire life.

Now a member of the track club at the University of Oregon, his goal is to become one of the few runners in the world with cerebral palsy to complete half-marathons unassisted and in record time.
