Life Rolls On: They Will Surf Again

by Jessica September 5 2013 13:19

We here at 180 Medical are so proud to have been a sponsor at the latest Life Rolls On event for They Will Surf Again, which was held recently at Huntington Beach, CA, on August 17th, 2013. The event was certainly an awe-inspiring day, and we were so glad to have been a part of it!

Life Rolls On is an amazing non-profit organization that was established in 2002 by Jesse Billauer, who was paralyzed in a surfing accident at the age of 17. LRO’s main focus is to improve the quality of life for those with spinal cord injuries by offering support and a chance to experience the empowerment and freedom of mobility in various sports.

They Will Surf Again, LRO’s signature Qualify of Life program, gives the opportunity to paralyzed individuals to surf, something they might not have thought possible to do after their injury/illness. However, by utilizing special adaptive equipment and the help of volunteers, participants get to experience the thrill of getting to ride the waves again!

LRO offers other great programs, such as They Will Skate Again & They Will Ski Again. You can find out more about the foundation at liferollson.org.

180 Medical is also honored to be a partner of the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation, a wonderful organization dedicated to curing spinal cord injuries, which has been involved with Life Rolls On and its various programs.
