A Standing Ovation for Aaron’s fight… an aspirational journey

Aaron Aby provided an inspirational speech which resulted in a well deserved spontaneous standing ovation to over 800 students and parents in Darland High School’s annual awards ceremony  in the William Aston Hall recently.

An ex Darland student, a professional Mixed Martial Artist and Coach who is also a Wrexham Gym Owner, Aaron was diagnosed at birth with the genetic condition Cystic Fibrosis. He had to make a conscious effort to look after himself both mentally and physically. Back in 1990, the life expectancy of someone with Cystic Fibrosis was 22 years old. This led Aaron to develop a passion for health and nutrition. Being born with Cystic Fibrosis had a huge impact on how he treated both his body and mind. It was at a very early age that he developed a clear understanding of the way in which health, nutrition and psychological mindset are linked together and about how each are absolutely crucial to us achieving our potential.

Celebrating the students’ achievements with them, Aaron helped present awards to over 300 students and staff in ahighly memorable evening. A retiring collection raised over £133 for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.
