Volunteer Speaking Ambassador
Mick Chisholm is a tough Aussie bloke who loves motocross, is a very hard-working business owner and is dedicated to his kids. Born in Sydney he has always enjoyed an active life of motocross, boating and adrenalin sports.
Mick’s life changed dramatically at age 44 on the 1st of December in 2017. On a hot summer day, he had a terrible motocross crash and broke his back (T10, T11 and T12) and became paralysed.
After many months in hospital Mick finally got back home to try and continue with his new life. There has been plenty of challenges with his health whilst running a business and raising a family but he has worked hard on his recovery. Mick continues to prioritise his rehabilitation training 3-4 times a week. He wants to encourage others living with a SCI and show them that life continues after injury.
