This past Saturday, August 13th, CarDirect USA was proud to once again sponsor Life Rolls On at the They Will Surf Again event on the Virginia Beach Oceanfront. This amazing organization has created an event that makes it possible for people affected by spinal cord injury to get into the water and surf the waves; believing that adaptive surfing and skating could inspire infinite possibilities beyond paralysis! This was the biggest year yet!! With over 100 surfers and 300 volunteers!
They Will Surf Again (TWSA) is an award-winning series of bi-coastal events that empower paraplegics and quadriplegics to experience the freedom of mobility by riding a wave with the assistance of adaptive equipment and the support of hard working volunteers. They Will Surf Again has the unique ability to engage and bridge the able-bodied and disabled communities, as they collaborate to push the bounds of possibility for those with SCI.
When the opportunity came up for Car Direct USA to sponsor this event, Brian Jones, a local surfer himself and Dealer Operator for Car Direct USA, jumped on it. “As a local business owner and a father myself, it means so much to me to be able to give back to the community and make a difference. Watching those who you wouldn’t think could get on a surfboard be able to ride the waves is an inspiration to us all, and we are proud to be a part of this event” Jones commented.
Life Rolls On is a non-profit organization that inspires others to see the boundless possibilities beyond paralysis. Established in 2002, LRO’s signature adaptive surfing program, They Will Surf Again, has grown into a catalyst of hope for thousands of individuals throughout the world.
