Confined To A Wheelchair, He Will Teach You What It Means To Never Give Up

Aaron ‘Wheelz’ Fotheringham was born with spina bifida, a birth defect that involves the spinal cord not forming correctly. But Aaron has never let his disability hold him back from what he’s wanted to accomplish in life: to live, play, and ride like any other able bodied person.

Aaron launched down his first skate park ramp at the age of 8. And although he crashed and burned his first time, he enjoyed it. So he kept trying until he made it.

Over the years Aaron progressively tried more and more stunts. He’s won a few BMX freestyle competitions, set numerous Guiness World Records including the first ever wheelchair backflip, and is one of the stars of MTV’s Nitro Circus.

Your disability is in your head. If you change the way you think about your disability, anything is possible.
