Team Jimmy Wheelz realized â€śWheel on upâ€ť a fundraiser for the November 8th 2014 WalkNRoll for Spina Bifida. An event like no other to raise funds for the Spina Bifida Association of Central Florida. We spread awareness and raised funds for Spina Bifida and celebrated alongside our friends. Not familiar with Spina Bifida? Spina Bifida is the most commonly occurring complex birth defect in this country affecting over 166,000 individuals. It occurs when the spine of the baby fails to close during the first month of pregnancy, leaving a permanent opening in the spinal column. For those who are born with Spina Bifida, some face no challenges while others may live with conditions such as hydrocephalus (fluid on the brain) and varying degrees of paralysis. The total average lifetime health costs for an infant born with Spina Bifida can exceed $1,000,000.

An absolute blessing to be able to speak today at the St. Pete city council meeting at city hall in support for the Spa Beach Skate Park Project Presented by Tito Porrata from Team Pain skateparks. Itâ€™s awesome to know that there will be a huge destination skatepark downtown in the future, not only for skateboarders, bmx and scooters but also WCMX, Wheelchair Motocross. Glad I was part of the many who supported this build. Read and share the article!
Great day out at Fanning Springs Disability Expo 2014. A great adventure among some of the greatest and gifted people, organizations anf groups. Right from the beginning the Jimmy Wheelz organization was fortunate to meet Hector De Valle from NSCIA-CFL which is dedicated to empowering individuals in Central Florida whose lives are impacted by spinal cord injury or disorder and Jerry Diaz, a fellow WCMX Rider and good friend. We were able to talk and make plans for the future of WCMX the sport here in Florida.
