THE STORY:

TRAVIS ROY FOUNDATION wrote -

The Travis Roy Foundation was established in 1997 to fund research and help spinal cord injury survivors by providing adaptive equipment. Inspired by Travis’ own story, the lifeblood of the Travis Roy Foundation has been the generosity of individuals, corporations and foundations across North America. This generosity has made an immediate impact on the lives of many individuals.

IT’S ABOUT INDEPENDENCE.

It’s amazing how the little things in life are so precious when they are not so easy to accomplish.  When you have a spinal cord injury, it has an impact on every aspect of your life – from your emotions to your finances. A portion of the money raised by the Travis Roy Foundation goes toward individual grant funds to purchase adaptive equipment to help paraplegics and quadriplegics live their lives.

For someone with a spinal cord injury, having the right wheelchair can mean the difference between feeling helplessly insufficient and being independent. You’re not just helping the recipient. You also relieve some of the physical and emotional strain on family and friends.

IT’S ABOUT HOPE.

It is the wish of every paralyzed person that one day their wheelchair will no longer be needed. The Travis Roy Foundation has awarded more than a million dollars in research grants. For researchers and scientists the most important question is basic: How can an injured spinal cord be regenerated? Researchers are working tirelessly to determine how cells in the central nervous system communicate with one another, but the research is expensive and a cure is likely still years away. The more money we raise, the sooner a cure will be found.

WHAT A DIFFERENCE YOU WILL MAKE.

Donations of all sizes have an impact – every penny you donate will help the Travis Roy Foundation do its work.
