Surfing plays a huge role in the organization’s quality of life programs, and through their They Will Surf Again program paraplegics and quadriplegics are able to “experience the freedom and mobility of riding a wave.”
“This year’s gala is incredibly meaningful to us because 2012 will mark Life Rolls On’s 10(th) anniversary as a non-profit organization,” stated Jesse Billauer, Founder and Director of National Outreach for Life Rolls On. “We’ve come a long way and Rob and Kelly have been there for our organization every step of the way. Not only were they the first to help me get back into the water after I was paralyzed, but they also chaired our inaugural They Will Surf Again adaptive surfing program that is now offered in nine cities among seven states for the paralysis community. Much of our success could be credited directly to them.”
