What’s the show about?

Matt Wilhelm worked his whole life to make it to the largest BMX competition in the world, The X-Games. However, his glory was short lived as he finished in LAST PLACE. Matt refused to give up and went on to win three X-Games medals and two National Championships.

Growing up Matt was made fun of for being “Different” and riding BMX. He was going to quit riding BMX altogether after an intense bullying episode at the local dirt jumps. However, another BMX rider had the courage to stand up for him and include him into the group. This small heroic act of kindness changed Matt’s life forever. Matt Wilhelm’s anti-bullying program empowers kids to stand up for others, stand up for themselves, and be everyday heroes.

Your students will hear the message loud and clear. They will walk away inspired and ready to make a difference.
