Filmed & edited by Dr. Diana Wehrell-Grabowski. Life Rolls On Foundation is a non-profit organization that exists to be a grassroots resource that provides help and is an advocate on behalf of young people whose lives have been affected by spinal cord injuries.
Life Rolls On Foundation's program called "They Will Surf Again" is an adptive surf program where people with disabilities mostly with spinal cord injuries get the chance to surf. Some have never surfed before, some surf all the time, and some have not surfed since sustaining their injury.

On Saturday July 25th, 2009 Life Rolls On/ They Will Surf Again event was held at Lori Wilson Park in Cocoa Beach, Florida. Approximately 120 volunteers were on hand to help 15 individuals who would venture into 2-3 foot surf. Most of the participants had never surfed a day in their lives until this day. One individual had never even been in the ocean before. Several individuals had surfed prior to their accidents. It was a beautiful day and truly an inspiration for all of us that often take life for granted. The participants you have seen in this film were truly amazing, they were so grateful to be spending the day on the beach and in the ocean. Once again, I left this event realizing that at any moment your life as it is at the present can drastically change within seconds, and without warning.

I have volunteered countless hours during my 50 years on this planet but this is by far the most rewarding volunteer experience I have ever participated in. I encourage each of you to find out when the next LRO, TWSA event is taking place on your coast and get involved in whatever capacity you are able and willing to. I want to personally thank each of the 15 LRO participants who I feel so grateful to have met.
