Aaron “Wheelz” Fotheringham is a 20 year-old wheelchair moto-cross athlete from Las Vegas, Nevada. Aaron was born with Spina Bifida, a birth defect of the spinal cord, which resulted in him having no usage of his legs.
We think that a disability can stop us from trying and doing new things but Aaron Fotheringham an 18 year old boy diagnosed with Spina bifida proved everybody wrong. By skating not with a skateboard or a BMX bike but with his wheelchair.
So this guy lives his life in a wheelchair, AND he's a professional BMX rider... Inspiring.
