Baily Matthews has cerebral palsy, a condition caused by brain damage that impairs the body’s control over movement and posture. Despite his mobility limitations, Bailey completed his first triathlon at just 9 years old, crossing the finish line without his walking frame and grabbing the attention of 800,000 followers on YouTube. The support he felt moved Bailey to create his own triathlon geared towards kids with similar disabilities called Be More Bailey Triathlon. Taking place in July in the United Kingdom, the race will give kids “the chance to join in and do the same as everybody else,” says Bailey. Triathlon organizer Dean Jackson added, “The great thing about this event is that it’s purely based on participation, excitement and fun. There’s no timing with this. You get in and finish at your own time.” Bailey hopes to inspire other children with disabilities to challenge themselves and boost the same confidence that he has gained through competing.
