June 22nd marks the 3 year anniversary of Stephen Murray’s accident in Baltimore MD which left him paralyzed from the shoulders down during a double backflip attempt in the finals of the AST Dew Tour.
The time may have flown by for us but for Stephen it has been a long, slow challenge to get his life back on track. Medical complications, divorce procedures and general obstacles thrown in his path have kept Stephen determined to over come the challenges before him and tackle his problems head on..
No matter how hard things have gotten for him he has always remained true to his life message “STAY STRONG” Never a quiter and always filled with determination previously as a rider and now in his current situation. Stephen Murray is still a BMX soldier in every sense of the word!
Remembering Stephen Murray today, and looking forward to him slowly getting his life back on track…
Message from Stephen… ” I would personally like to thank the Worldwide BMX community and industry for all the support shown to me and my family in the last 3 years. It is humbling to think how much people have pulled together to help us out and I appreciate everything that you guys have done for me. My past sponsors and even brands I didn’t ride for have gone above and beyond what I could have ever imagined.. The BMX family is a true family and I’m greatful to have you all behind me.. It’s been a tough 3 years but I’m still pushing on and not going to let this situation get the better of me! Stay Strong isn’t just a saying or a brand name, it’s a way of life to me now and a message I will always stick by and continue to promote. No matter how tough life get’s STAY STRONG. Thank you.
