Max

Max was just four years old when he got his first dirt bike—and by the time he was a high school senior, he was taking part in motocross competitions throughout the East Coast. It was at one of these competitions where he was thrown from his bike. What Max hoped was a simple sprain quickly turned serious: His ankle was in ten pieces and two of the main arteries in his right leg were severed. After a number of surgeries, amputation was the best option. Once his prosthetic was fitted, Max began physical therapy at Burke, where, by the end of three months, he was able to run comfortably—a goal he set for himself. These days, Max is back on his bike: In 2013, he competed in the X Games and continues to ride today.

The now 22-year-old is also looking towards the future: he’s a college senior and hopes to become—what else?—a physical therapist.
