How It All Got Started
Jimmy Button lived and breathed motorcycles and had his whole future ahead of him. He was 26 years old and was starting his 10th year as a professional motocross rider, his 2nd year with factory Yamaha. However, on January 22, 2000 his whole life would drastically change in a split second. While practicing for the evening's Supercross race at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, Jimmy went down in the whoop section and immediately went numb. As Jimmy lay there the fans and his teammates watched silently as he was carried off the track.
That evening his family and friends were told he would probably never walk again. He had bruised his spinal cord at his 2nd and 3rd vertebrae and was paralyzed from the neck down.
What the doctors did not know was how powerful Jimmy's spirit and courage were. He came back not to ride again but to win something much bigger, to win the race of walking again.
