This Guy Is About To Do Something Spectacular. He’s Better Than Me On Foot!

Aaron “Wheelz” Fotheringham is a wheelchair moto-cross athlete from Las Vegas, Nevada. Aaron was born with Spina Bifida, a birth defect of the spinal cord. He started riding at skateparks when he was 8 years old. He has since won a few BMX free style competitions, including the 2005 Vegas AmJam BMX finals. Aaron likes to show children with disabilities that a wheelchair can be a toy and not a restriction. He wants to change the world’s perception of people in wheelchairs, and help others to see their own challenges in a different way.

Aaron is an inspiration to us all. I love his enthusiasm for life, and he's an amazing man. If this inspired you, share his story with others by clicking the share button.
