GOOD CAUSE: Life Rolls On Foundation

by Marquette Turner Luxury Homes

in Features, Good Causes

When times are tough, it can be hard to pick yourself up. Now imagine how much tougher it would be if you had a spinal cord injury. It’s hard to fathom but for some people, it’s all very real.

The “Life Rolls On Foundation” brings able-bodied and disabled people together, motivating one another to inspirational heights.

[HTML1]

“They Will Surf Again” is the flagship program of Life Rolls On, allowing those people with spinal cord injuries to push their boundaries, and feel the thrill, rush and exhilaration that floating on water and crashing through the waves can provide.

Other examples of challenges include surfing, motocross, wakeboarding, skateboarding or dance, these individuals are pushing the boundaries of their injuries.

IMPORTANT FACTS

– 1,275,000 – Estimate of number of people in United States alone that have a spinal cord injury

– Approximately 12,000 new injuries occur each year in the USA (18 youth suffer a new spinal cord every day)

– 56% of injuries occur between the ages of 16 and 30

“Life Rolls On” provides inspiration, challenge, and opportunity to so many people.

You're welcome Meghan

We may be a long way away, but heard of your great program on ABC's Extreme Home Makeover! We're in the US many times each year so we'd love to come along to one of your events.

I think it's something that would work well in Australia too, particularly the surfing events which of course is very popular here.

Keep up the good work!
