Welcome to Drew's Personal Page
For a second year in a row, I am playing in the Travis Roy Foundation WIFFLE Ball Tournament in Essex Junction, Vermont. I am playing to raise money to help spinal cord injury survivors live more independent and hopeful lives and I would love it if you would help me.
Every year, thousands of people sustain life-altering spinal cord injuries that leave them paralyzed. The experience changes their and their families' lives forever. In my job at the Travis Roy Foundation I hear and see dozens of their stories every month. I’ll ask you these questions. Do you drive or ride in a car? Do you body-surf at the beach? Do you mountain bike? Do you dive into a pool? Of course you likely do some or all of these things. These are all the fun and somewhat adventurous things that we all do, especially during the summer months. For an unlucky few, however, unexpected accidents during these activities can lead to devastating injuries. For these folks, the Travis Roy Foundation has been around for 20+ years making grants to spinal cord injury survivors for the wheelchairs, the home or vehicle modifications and the technology they need to live more independent lives that they cannot otherwise afford.
Because I don't think playing WIFFLE Ball - while tons of fun - is much of a challenge, I am also committing to climb five of New Hampshire's 4,000 foot mountains this summer and asking you to support me in this challenge. The average adaptive equipment grant that we make to spinal cord injury survivors is $3,500. My goal, with your help, is raise $7,000 this year so that we can help two of our grantees. Will you help me?
I will keep you updated as to my mountain-climbing, fundraising and WIFFLE ball progress throughout the summer.
Thank you for your consideration and your generosity.
