YouTube video about Stephen Murray's accident and recovery
Stay strong Stephen! You are an inspiration to us all!
Stephen Murray was a top British BMX dirt jumper who was competing in a big American event last year when he had a tragic and life changing crash. Severe spinal cord damage left him paralyzed from the neck down and his family and most of the BMX world in shock. But Stephen is fighting hard to recover, with his wife and two young boys providing the motivation to walk again. It is an inspritational and emotional story...watch the video above to see for yourself! ARF was started shortly after to help athletes like Stephen pay for the huge medical expenses and support costs. Steve Peat was eager to help Stephen through ARF, it was his idea after all!
