Ever thought ‘I can’t’?

Aaron Fotheringham is an extreme wheelchair athlete who performs tricks adapted from skateboarding and BMX.

Fotheringham has Spina Bifida; he has used a wheelchair since the age of three and although he used crutches early on, he has been a wheelchair user full-time since the age of eight. He would watch his brother riding his BMX at the skate park, and one day his brother told him that he should try riding his chair in the park and the rest is history!
