Aaron “Wheelz” Fotheringham
Aaron “Wheelz” Fotheringham from Las Vegas, Nevada was born with Spina Bifida, a birth defect of the spinal cord, which resulted in him having no usage of his legs.
Aaron never let anything stop him. Even as a baby and small child, he did anything anyone else his age could do; he just had to figure out how to make it work for him.
Aaron started riding at skate parks at the age of 8 when his older brother Brian said he should drop in a quarter pipe! Now at the age of 21 he is a professional wheelchair moto-cross athlete.
Aaron wants to change the world’s perception of people in wheelchairs, as well as helping everyone see his/her own challenges in a new way. Aaron’s appeal is universal. You certainly do not have to be disabled to be inspired by what he is able to do.
