On August 5, 2017, Van Products joined BraunAbility at Carolina Beach for the Life Rolls On – They Will Surf Again event.
Life Rolls On – They Will Surf Again
Founded by world champion quadriplegic surfer and motivational speaker, Jesse Billauer, They Will Surf Again is a quality of life program that empowers people living with paralysis to surf and paddle board the waves – in spite of their physical challenges.
Over the years, this Life Rolls On event has grown. It now boasts ten events coast to coast and attracts people of all abilities from around the world. Participation is FREE and is made possible by the generosity of private donors, fundraising efforts, and sponsors, like BraunAbility.
“We have a great synergy between Life Rolls On and BraunAbility. Our mission and goal is the same – of getting people out into the world to be able to enjoy their life more,” said Billauer.
Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles Make a Difference
Often, able-bodied people don’t realize the true value of being able to do things independently – whether it’s just getting up to use the bathroom or walking into the kitchen to grab a snack from the fridge. For those who have been directly impacted by mobility challenges and physical limitations, independence matters, and having a wheelchair accessible SUV, like the BraunAbility MXV makes a difference. Billauer explains:
I never thought that I’d be able to drive a vehicle just myself. I thought I was always going to have to depend on other people. When that’s taken from you – you know – when you’re paralyzed or have a disability, you just can’t imagine just getting that back. It’s a moment that you’ll never ever forget.
What does freedom of mobility look like to you? To those you love? At Van Products, we take great pride in partnering with BraunAbility to provide our customers with high quality wheelchair-accessible vehicles, mobility products and accessories to help them regain their freedom of mobility. We invite you to stop by our storefront location(s) in Raleigh, NC and Wilmington, NC, or give our mobility specialists a call.
