Chris Shaw, a basketball coach living with Cerebral Palsy, has become a pillar of inspiration at our Beacon Community Center. Despite facing the challenges of visual impairment in one eye and limited motor function on the right side of his body, Chris has continued to pursued his passion for the sport of basketball.

His remarkable journey and commitment serve as a source of motivation for individuals within our community, especially those with disabilities. Through his mentorship and coaching, he has not only honed the skills of aspiring basketball players but has also shown importance of perseverance and dedication.
