Life Rolls on is a wonderful grassroots organization that is an advocate for young people that have suffered or endure a spinal cord injury, mostly of the complete severity. <BR> <BR>I take a special interest in this charity, after recently being introduced to it, because I have an SCI...but for the grace of God, I should have ben confied to a wheelchair. <BR> <BR>Our very own Matt Smedman of Smed Wakesurfers has a family friend that not only suffered a complete SCI but also is involved with the charity. Matt was one of the generous contributors to the LRO - Night by the Ocean fundraiser. <BR> <BR>Huge props to Matt for supporting the charity, as well as, broadening the exposure for wakesurfing. <BR> <BR>Here's a pic of my Matt's board with Jesse Billauer, founder of LRO <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/559019/643885.jpg" alt="Upload"> <BR> <BR>More pics from the event <a href="http://www.liferollson.org/siteapps/tools/PhotoGallery.aspx?c=egLLKTNJE&amp;b=4662351&amp;re turn=y" target="_blank">here</a>

My aplogies to Matt for misspelling his last name I always confuse his screen name of Smedman with his actual last name of Smedley <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0> Forgive me too JL, for confusing you. I'm OLD! <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0> <BR> <BR>That is sick video of Jesse. Truly an inspirational figure.
