In this Sunday, July 16, 2017 photo, Leslie Marroquin, 16, of Houston makes a maneuver down a ramp during a wheelchair motocross event at North Houston Skate Park in Houston. Bailey, 34, has cerebral palsy. But she has discovered the world of so-called "adaptive athletics," learning to let the wheelchair become a tool to participate in sports. Marroquin has been using a wheelchair for six months. Her legs are paralyzed, but her mother had wanted to find activities still available to her. She connected with Bailey online.
