DULUTH, MN– A southern-Minnesota teen is hoping to raise money this weekend for the United Healthcare Children’s Foundation.

Aidan Gravelle is racing in the adaptive athlete program this weekend.

He was born with sacral agenesis, which caused his lower part of his spine to be abnormal.

Gravelle has always been an athlete himself but it wasn’t until a couple of years ago that he got to dabble in wheelchair racing.

“About two years ago I received a grant from UHCCF for a racing chair and I started doing track and field and I fell in love with it ever since,” said Gravelle.

Gravelle has teamed up with United Healthcare Children’s Foundation to raise funds for them, and to be an example for other wheelchair athletes.
