Aaron ‘Wheelz’ Fotheringham Proves Nothing Is Impossible
Imagine a child growing up in a wheelchair saying he wants to be a professional skateboarder and BMX rider. Impossible, right? Meet Aaron Fotheringham.
When I first saw this guy my first thought was, “Incredible!” My second thought was, “He must be an injured extreme athlete who doesn’t know when to quit!” But actually Aaron “Wheelz” Fotheringham has Spina Bifida and has been wheelchair-bound since age 3!
He used to watch his brother at the skate park until he decided to try it one day.
When he competes professionally he enters BMX competitions! He’s performed in live stunt shows, has been a stunt devil on television and even appeared in a reality TV show.
