Life Rolls On

Life Rolls On Moves toward Success with Blackbaud Sphere™

Life Rolls On is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping young people whose lives have been affected by spinal cord injury. Life Rolls On utilizes action sports to push the boundaries of possibility for those with spinal cord injury. This is exemplified by the Life Rolls On ambassadors, who personify a message of achievement in the face of extreme adversity. Through individual extensions of courage, whether it be surfing, motocross, wakeboarding, chairskating, or dance, Life Rolls On ambassadors are living life to the fullest, shifting paradigms, and leaving a path of change wherever they go.
