Beneficiary of the 4th Annual Derby Day
Each year, Empower SCI helps individuals recovering from a spinal cord injury get out and enjoy surfing with their modified equipment. This is just one event during the 2-week residential rehabilitation program in Stony Brook, NY, which helps 12 individuals with spinal cord injuries to return to living happier, more meaningful and more independent lives.
Empower SCI focuses on challenging people to strive for independence and to push their own personal limits, which aligns nicely with the 33 Foundation's mission of healing the whole person. Getting out into the waves gets people out of their chairs, and involved in a sport that they might not have thought of as possible with their level of injuries. This partnership with the 33 Foundation and your support will help these participants expand their horizons and have a blast doing it.
