The Nicholas Milojevic Walk “N” Roll-a-Thon was inspired by this wonderful young man. Due to birth complications Nicholas had Cerebral Palsy. He fought many challenges with such strength and perseverance. No matter how difficult his day was he always had a smile for all. Without words he taught us to be more tolerant of people, to appreciate the minor things we are given and to have a better understanding of disabilities.

At an early age he took a liking to Nascar and eventually to #24 Jeff Gordon. When he heard that number and name he was so excited and just kept looking at the tv, he knew a race or a recording of a race would be played for him. He liked a few things but this was his 24/7 and he could not take his eyes off the screen and just looked for the #24 car.

He had such an infectious smile and sparkling blue eyes. From this we came up with a motto "Sunshine like your smile and blue skies like your blue eyes". Wanting all individuals with disabilities to have sunshine and blue skies in their every day.

Nicholas passed away in August of 2014 at the age of 22. His memory will be kept alive through this and other fundraising for CP. He has inspired us and we hope he inspires all of you reading this to join us in remembering him and raising funds for individuals with CP.
