A lot of people have been enjoying the London Olympics on television this week. But, one local athlete is still looking forward to her chance to compete in London. Nichole Millage, a 1995 graduate of Champaign Centennial High School, is a member of the 2012 USA Sitting Volleyball Team that will be participating in this year's Paralympics. A fundraiser Saturday hosted by Po'Boys restaurant hopes to raise enough money to send her parents, Dave and Philomena Schnepper to watch their daughter compete. You can get a 2012 London Paralympics Sitting Volleyball and T-Shirt at the fundraiser, and register to win an autographed team volleyball and jersey! The event beings at 4pm on Saturday at Po'Boys at 202 East University in Urbana [map]. Let's all get out and support Nichole!
