Spina Bifida (SB)

Jack Harvey

No matter what life brings you, you can do anything with a positive attitude and hard work

My name is Jack Harvey and I’m a pro WCMX rider. WCMX stands for wheelchair motocross. I have a disability that is called Spina Bifida. This is a defect of the spinal cord which causes paralysis. Many doctors told me that I would have a bad life and I could never be independent. My parents didn’t agree with them. They were determined to make me independent, and also love life. My biggest achievements would be that I have been able to find true happiness, success, and I am able to help others through the sport I love, WCXM! I am so proud to know that I have achieved my dream and became the world’s youngest pro WCMX rider. At this point I want to be an encouragement to other to never give up and live their dreams to the fullest. No matter what life brings you, you can do anything with a positive attitude and hard work.
