Aaron Fotheringham, aka Wheelz, is inspiring people around the world, especially people who use wheelchairs to mobilize. He travels with Nitrus Circus riding WCMX (Wheelchair Motocross.) Wheelz was born with Spinabifida and his doctors told him he would forever need assistance from others to get around and to survive. He has definitely showed them wrong and created his own destiny and legacy. As Wheelz says, “you’re only as disabled as you feel” which is surely the attitude that enables him to hit so many ramps and jumps while using his wheelchair. The way he goes about his day to day is equally as inspiring. He’s able to go up and down stairs with his chair, take escalators and hop in and out of a vehicle without hesitation. There are endless videos of him training and performing dangerous jumps all over YouTube. Here are a few videos that would inspire anyone with any type of mobility!
