How We Help

Life Rolls On

Our Programs

Life Rolls On produces adaptive surfing, skating and snowboarding programs which empower paraplegics and quadriplegics to demonstrate that anything is possible despite paralysis. In addition to unique quality of life events, LRO fosters spinal cord injury awareness and offers outreach to individuals and their families at the onset of injury. All programs are provided at no-cost to participants and, while our primary mission is to serve young people with spinal cord injury, no one challenged by mobility is ever turned away and people of all ages are welcome.
