CROWDRISING SINCE: May 23, 2011
Stuff About Me:

The Extremity Games are JUST around the corner and we want to get our super fast, super star friend Chris Ridgway to Michigan on May 28th to race in Adaptive Motocross once again! As a four-time Extremity Games Gold Medalist, and two-time X-Games Gold Medalist, Chris has never let his prosthetic limb stop him from achieving his dreams of being the fastest guy on one leg.

The goal here is simple... we are raising $5,000 for the Limbs For Life Foundation, a non-profit that buys limbs for amputees in need, so that Chris can get back to the Extremity Games and claim his 5th gold on behalf of the organization. By promoting the organization that outfitted him with his very own limb for life, Chris hopes his efforts continue to inspire other amputees to succeed reaching their dreams.

The full scoop on Chris – Chris Ridgway is an amputee from Apple Valley, CA and competes wearing a prosthetic left leg. Chris suffered catastrophic injuries to both legs in 1995 when he lost control of his motorcycle during a motocross competition and fell 40 feet. When he landed feet-first on the up-slope of the next hill, he suffered compound fractures in both legs.

His left ankle was especially mangled and it would be three years before Ridgway would compete again. When he came back, the pain became too much and Ridgway opted to have his left leg amputated below the knee in 2002. Unable to pay for a prosthesis, he turned to the Limbs for Life Foundation, which awarded him a new prosthesis so that Chris could resume his career.

His competitive spirit originated with motocross and he has since competed in many different events, including Adaptive Motocross, Rock Racing, King of the Hammers, Grand Am Rolex Series, the Silver State Classic, and Baja 1000. Some of his impressive wins include the X Games Gold Medalist: 2008, 2009; and the Extremity Games Gold Medalist: 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010.
