Global leader and inventor of wheelchair moto-cross blazes new path for wheelchair athletes
Paris, September 22, 2021 - Teleperformance, a leading global group in digitally integrated business services, launchedits "Inspired to be the Best" campaign earlier this year as part of a larger program designed to promote a culture of diversity and inclusion. The campaign highlights people who have demonstrated passion, dedication, and persistence to achieve their goals. Much like Teleperformance does with its customers, partners, and employees, Aaron Fotheringham's actions in his wheelchair on the skateboard and BMX circuit inspires others to achieve their goals.
Fotheringham, who has been wheelchair-bound since the age of eight due to a condition known as spina bifida, watched his older brother ride his BMX bike and do tricks at the local skate park with admiration. Known for his incredible determination and spirit, his brother knew that "young Aaron" could do anything once he set his mind to it and suggested that he try-by riding own his own wheelchair in the park. Once he did, there was no turning back.
"I was hooked. When I was fourteen years old, I became the first person to successfully perform a backflip in a wheelchair," said Fotheringham
His tenacity and dedication to the sport has helped him break new boundaries for wheelchair athletes, most notably demonstrating that no handicap is too large to overcome.
"Overcoming adversity to achieve greatness, as well as breaking new ground in a sport, is the hallmark of a champion," said Teleperformance Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Daniel Julien. "Aaron is an innovator and a terrific role model for anyone who wants to set out and achieve their goals. He has the heart of a champion and continues to inspire others."
The "Inspired to be the Best" campaign is being promoted via the company's social media channels, Twitter,Facebook,and LinkedIn, along with special Teleperformance special private screenings to inspire and motivate employees throughout 2021.
