Life Rolls On (LRO), a subsidiary of the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation, is dedicated to improving the quality of life for young people affected by neurological injury, especially spinal cord injury, and utilizes action sports as a platform to inspire infinite possibilities despite paralysis. Founded by Jesse Billauer, LRO offers programs to individuals with disabilities such at They Will Surf Again and They Will Ski Again.
On Saturday, June 4th, students from USA volunteered for They Will Surf Again, held in Jacksonville Beach. They Will Surf Again, the flagship of LRO, is a no-cost program that allows individuals with spinal cord and/or traumatic brain injuries to gather together for a day of surfing, camaraderie and inspiration.
Through the hard work of more than 100 volunteers, over 40 individuals were able to hit the waves and experience the thrill of surfing. Many thanks to all of the student volunteers from USA. The event organizers were impressed with the number of USA students that came out to lend a hand. What a great turnout from USA!
