Aaron put a huge amount of energy into training and even attended the Florida project in 2011 - a 10 week intensive training camp to help him be competitive on an international stage. Soon he was classified as a 3.5 player - the highest in the GB Wheelchair Rugby squad.
His hard work paid off when he was selected to be part of the Wheelchair Rugby team for Great Britain in the London 2012 Paralympic games where he scored over half of the overall points for the
team. Then in 2016 Aaron set himself the ultimate challenge of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro - the highest mountain in Africa - to raise money for MRF. It was the first time a disabled British person had climbed Kilimanjaro without assistance.
As he got higher up the mountain, his off-road wheelchair could no longer deal with the rough terrain so he trekked for four days on his hands and knees. This was an incredible test of his endurance but his energy and determination got him to the summit.
Over the years Aaron has raised over £250,000 for MRF, for which the charity are very grateful and proud to have him as a supporter. Aaron now works for Roma Sport on their innovation and development within its sports and active wheelchair portfolio. He is also an athlete mentor for Sky Academy and a motivational speaker.
In addition, Aaron is the Chancellor of the New Forest and Southampton Children’s University.Aaron, his wife Vicky and their two daughters Ella and Chloe remain in Aaron’s hometown of Totton, Southampton.
