What is LRO?
Life Rolls On is a non-profit organization that inspires others to see the boundless possibilities beyond paralysis. Established in 2002, LRO’s signature adaptive surfing program, They Will Surf Again, has grown into a catalyst of hope for thousands of individuals throughout the world.
Our Founder's story
With the support of his family, Jesse Billauer established Life Rolls On after a spinal cord injury resulted in paralysis. Despite this injury, Jesse continues to live life to its fullest as a professional surfer and motivational speaker. His inspirational story has been made into a feature film.
Life Rolls On is dedicated to improving the quality of life for young people affected by spinal cord injury and utilizes action sports as a platform to inspire infinite possibilities despite paralysis.
"Life Rolls On is one of my favorite charities. There are only a few things I am actively involved in supporting and Life Rolls On is one of them - mainly because they are the greatest representation of the spark of life we all have inside."
Our work is driven by founder Jesse Billauer, who is committed to push the bounds of possibility for those living with paralysis.
Life Rolls On is always looking for talented and driven people to join our team. With your help, we can inspire and support individuals and their families who are facing new lives that they never imagined for themselves.
Our programs are provided at no-cost to participants and volunteers thanks to the generosity of partners who believe in our mission and generously donate to our programs.
