A Real Inspiration

You dont have to be involved in extreme sports to be inspired by Stephen Murray and his story. Accidents like this can happen to anyone. This guy has an incredible outlook on things considering his situation.

Almost four years ago, the life of professional BMX rider and 3-time U.S. gold medalist Stephen Murray was thrown a proverbial curve ball. At the BMX Dirt Finals of the Dew Actions Sport Tour in Baltimore, Maryland, a double back flip would ultimately go on to paralyze Murray from the neck down. In this Pass the Bucket with Vans, Stephen Murray provides an inspiration story of coping with being paralyzed and his new outlook on life which enables him to carry out and maintain a fruitful life. Following his injury, Murray started up his foundation, “Stay Strong” which can be seen here.
