Injured in a bicycle accident when he was 15 years old, Aaron took what most people would say to be a life-ending situation and transformed it into a powerful presentation that has earned him many awards including, Toast Masters of District Six, Speaker of the Year Award, and Augsburg College's Key Maker Award.

In 1997 Aaron graduated from Augsburg College with a degree in Mass Communication with an emphasis in motivational speaking. Since then Aaron has been featured in nationally-syndicated magazines such as Sport' N Spokes, Paraplegic News, Target, and Spirit Magazine along with being featured on local, regional and national print and electronic media such as ABC, CBS and NBC.

Aaron credits his success to his family and friends who unknowingly created his nationally-renowned presentation "FOCUS on YOUR TARGET." Aaron is an example of a man who believes in himself and his presentations; he does not just say it, Aaron lives it! "Because life is about living, not wondering," a mantra that Aaron lives by... that and Eleanor Roosevelt's immortal statement,"You must try and do the things you think you cannot do."

Aaron has lived a life most people only dream about; but when it comes to Aaron Cross, he uses his FOCUS to accomplish everything he sets a goal for, including winning a Paralympic medal.

Yes! Aaron is a three-time Paralympian in the sport of archery. In Athens, Greece, 2004, Aaron and his teammates shot their way to the first-ever U.S. medal in the sport of archery at the Paralympic level. In 1991, the doctors told Aaron and his family,"The best thing you can do for him is get him a good color television and a good remote." Since that day, Aaron has dedicated his life to following his FOCUS and because of his unwavering belief in his FOCUS, Aaron has accomplished much more than a Paralympic medal - if that was not enough. Aaron adds to his life by skydiving, SCUBA diving, marathons, triathlons, duathlons, trap shooting, hunting and the one that stops everyone ... he has even done training courses with the U.S. Navy SEALs.

"Life is about living not wondering; so I do the things I think I can not do."

That is Aaron Cross!
