Paralyzed Motocross Rider is Making History

Believe in it®

Watch the Inspiring Story of Darius Glover.

Darius Glover's goal is to win a national title.  He is the first paraplegic motocross racer to compete in the Amateur National Series.  He is one race away from qualifying for the National Championship later this summer.

At 15 Darius suffered a life changing crash during a race that left him without the use of his legs. He said the first thing the
doctor told him was that he would never
be able to ride again.  Darius simply responded, "You are wrong."  He spent the next year in a hospital bed dreaming about making his answer a reality.

His family helped him build a customized bike, and he relearned how to ride without using his legs for balance and support.  Learning how to ride again has not been the only obstacle keeping him from competing.  He also had to fight for his eligibility to ride in the Amateur National Series as a paraplegic. 

Despite the adversity, Darius still has an infectious smile and positive outlook on life. 

When people say they feel sorry for him Darius replies, "I don't know why you feel sorry for me.  I still do more things than most people who can use their legs."  Darius knows he is here for a reason, for a purpose.  He is never going to stop loving life, chasing his dreams and inspiring others along the way.

You can visit Ride with Darius to learn more about his charity Live and Learn.

Principle Diagnosed with Cancer is Brought to Tears by Student's Gift

Believe in it®

Watch this Touching 2 Minute Video Created by WMUR9.

The seniors at Profile High School in Bethleham were planning their senior trip when they heard the terrible news. Their principle, Courtney Vashaw, was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of cancer. 

Instead of just feeling sorry for her the senior class decided to do something unbelievable.  They gave their principle all the money they raised over the past four years for their senior trip.  This money will help cover medical expenses.

The students described Principle Vashaw as selfless, caring, strong and determined.  One student said, "She is very selfless and we wanted to be selfless too".  

Principle Vashaw said, "She teaches her students it is important to do something that is bigger than yourself and this act of kindness is proof they are listening" 

Principle Vashaw has a tough battle ahead of her and the outcome is uncertain. What is certain is that she has succeeded in teaching her students the importance of being selfless and generous to others.

Why This Coach Catches His Runner at End of Every Race

Believe in it®

This story will make you smile, it will make you cry, it will give you goosebumps and it will inspire you.  It's been viewed over 10.5 million times. 

“Running makes me feel normal, and whole.  It’s difficult to live with a disease where your own body’s fighting against yourself; so when I’m running I feel like I’m battling that, I feel like I’m safe from myself.  As long as I’m running, everything’s fine.”

These are the words of Kayla Montgomery.  Kayla is a freshman at Lipscomb University.  At age 14 she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS).  For 8 months after her diagnosis she couldn't feel her legs.

Instead of being depressed and mad; she decided to run.  She went from a slow runner to the faster in the State of North Carolina.  MS causes her to be in pain every time she races and she can't feel her legs.

This means when she stops moving her legs after a race, she crumbles and her coach has to catch her at the finish line.  

Watch Kayla's full story on this ESPN E:60 video.

Believe in it®

Abby Veigel from Pennsylvania is this week's Believe in it® Athlete spotlight.  She recently learned about the #Believeinit attitude after shopping with one of our retail partners; Elite Runners and Walkers in McKees Rocks, PA.

Abby had this to say on her Instagram post,

"We all have that reason to why we wake up when it's still dark, why we push hard during every workout, why we never give up! We all have our "it"! You can accomplish any thing you set your mind to if you #believeinit. I knew I didn't want to weigh 300 lbs and be a mother that my girls were ashamed of! I believed I could and I did! What's your "it"?"
