A sophomore at Phoenixville Area High School in Pennsylvania has proved that nothing is impossible for him, including competing in a track and field event despite having cerebral palsy.
Dillan McCants, 16, has been living with cerebral palsy and hasn’t walked since he was a child, according to 6ABC, but that didn’t stop him from joining his high school track team.
The track coach, Dustin Poole, encouraged McCants to try out for the track team, and he worked with a physical therapist twice a week to work on his walking, according to Sporting News.
McCants, with the help of his walker and cheers from the crowd, walked 30 feet to cross the finish line during the May 5 track meet.
