Welcome to my personal fundraising page! For the 11th straight year, I am participating in the annual Travis Roy Foundation Wiffle Ball Tournament. For those that know of Travis, or have a friend, acquaintance, or family member that has had the misfortune of dealing with paralysis, you know it is one of the most devastating injuries a person and their family can go through. It is the mission of the Travis Roy Foundation to enhance the lives of individuals with spinal cord injuries, by providing adaptive equipment grants and helping to fund spinal cord research.
In October of 1995, Travis was gearing up to play in his first collegiate hockey game, something that had been a life long goal for him. Just 11 seconds into his first shift for the Terriers of Boston University, a freak accident drove Travis into the boards. A cracked fourth vertebra left him paralyzed from the neck down. Travis saw his lifelong dream flash before his eyes.
After the accident, Travis was faced with a new life adventure. In creating the Travis Roy Foundation to help others who suffer from paralysis and raise money for spinal cord research, Travis has used his determination to touch the lives of millions. The foundation was established in 1997 and to this day Travis travels the country to tell his story and support others who have faced traumatizing accidents.
All donations help and are greatly appreciated! Thank you so much in advance
