Jason McMillen is a Topekan living with cerebal palsy. But that's not what this story is about. Its about. It is about a man with great spirit accomplishing his goals.

McMillen has excelled at boccia ball for more than 20 years. He says he would like to retire from the sport at some point, but always gets pulled back in.

McMillen has another reason to stay in the sport. His coach, Aindrea McGuire is like a family member to him, and she agrees.

She has been volunteering at the Salvation Army for years, but really took an interest in McMillen's sport a few years ago. She became head coach this year, and hopes to guide him to victory in the national championships.

Championships are held in Atlanta, July 9 - 13. We'll keep you updated on Jason's tournament run.
