Aaron WHEELZ Fotheringham 

Aaron also known as WHEELZ is a WCMX athlete from Las Vegas, Nevada.

Aaron was born with Spina Bifida, a birth defect of the spinal cord, which resulted in him having no use of his legs. He is the third of six children, all adopted.

Aaron never lets anything stop him through the power of manifesting his incredible spirit. Even as a baby and small child, he did anything anyone else his age could do; he just had to figure out how to make it work for him. He rolled over, sat up, and even crawled (on hands and belly, no leg action) pretty much on schedule. Within days of receiving his first walker, he was off and running. Next came crutches, which he mastered quickly. He would put on a Superman cape and blast down the hall on crutches believing, as any other 4-year-old, that he could fly.

Aaron started riding at skateparks at the age of 8 when his older brother Brian, a BMXer, said he should drop in. He had been going to the park with Brian and their dad for weeks, but Aaron would just watch from behind the fence. The first time was scary, and he fell hard, but he was never one to give up just because it wasn’t easy. So he tried again and from then on he was hooked.

At the beginning of his career, Aaron entered and won a few BMX Freestyle competitions, including the legendary 2005 Vegas AmJam BMX Finals, but for Aaron that was always secondary to the joy of riding and hanging out with friends at all the skateparks in Las Vegas.

Aaron has a passion for what he does. Not only is it a lot of fun, but he wants to change the world’s perception of people on wheelchairs and to help everyone see their own challenges in a new way. Aaron’s appeal is universal. You certainly do not have to be handicapped to be inspired by what he is able to do.
