TeamTRF is proud to participate in the 2017 John Hancock Non-Profit Marathon Program!!! This is our fourth year partnering with John Hanock and appreciate our runners who have raised over $200,000 to support the Travis Roy Foundation.
For over 19 years the Travis Roy Foundation has raised money to fund spinal cord research and to provide adaptive equipment grants to spinal cord injured survivors. As much as every person with paralysis would like to walk again, the TRF recognizes there are many SCI survivors who have more immediate and pressing needs. Through the purchase of wheelchairs, voice-activated computers, simple home modifications, and other adaptive equipment, the Travis Roy Foundation provides increased independence to our grantees today, as they wait for research to come to fruition tomorrow.
