We like to bring inspirational tales to you, tales that make you take a step back and think “whoa, life’s not bad after all!” when you think that life’s just not fair… but there’s always someone out there who makes you feel ashamed of petty whinging and this time it’s Aaron Fotheringham, 20-years old – aka ‘Wheelz’, moto-cross athlete from Las Vegas, Nevada.
Aaron ‘Wheelz’ Fotheringham
Wheelz has obtained a cult following globally for his antics with the Nitro Circus Live Tour after successfully landing 40ft Backflips, Double Backflips and Front-flips in the past six months… most people wouldn’t be able to do that on a bmx let alone a wheelchair.
Wheelz wants to change the world’s perception of people in wheelchairs. Someday he hopes to design “the most wicked” chair in the world…
And if that’s not a lesson on how to beat diversity I don’t know what is!
