Oaks Christian pole-vaulter Lauren Radke battles Graves' disease, but it hasn't slowed her down one bit.
In the past year, much to Radke's surprise, she also started getting support from Oaks Christian parent and "Farscape" actor, Ben Browder.
"It's been nice to get some help this year," Radke said. "(Browder) has a daughter in the eighth grade, so he started volunteering this year. At first I didn't expect him to know anything about the sport, but as time has gone by he's helped me a lot, and I'm finally starting to trust that he knows what he's doing."
