Nico Calabria is extremely active; he wrestles, practices gymnastics, and has raised over $100,000 for charity by climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. He also plays for the varsity soccer team at Concord-Carlisle High in Massachusetts, where he once scored a goal that has gained over 2 million hits on YouTube; all before the age of 19. The surprise? Nico has done all of this with only one leg.
What seemed like a simple question from Nico’s father sparks an answer that would define Nico’s life; “What do you think you’re going to do today?” his dad asks. “I want to play” Nico responds. And that he did, showing us that no matter what your circumstance is, never give up. Never stop playing.
