I stumbled upon two great organizations today

September 8th, 2007 · No Comments

Travis and I went to the ASR today.  The ASR is trade show that comes to San Diego twice a year.  We actually went yesterday too.  When we go we walk around to the different booths and talk with the companies about potential business deals.  On our way out today we were really tired.  Just as we were about to walk out of the convention center we noticed two last booths, Stand Strong Again and Grind for Life

Stand Strong Again is a nonprofit organization set up to assist in funding spinal cord research.  Money also goes towards providing  resources to action sports participants who have suffered spinal cord injuries to assist in the treatment of, recovery from, and ultimate transition to life with, spinal cord injuries.

Grind For Life is also a nonprofit organization.  It was started back in 2003 by Mike Rodgers, a life-long skateboarder, after his second battle with sarcoma cancer.  The mission of the Grind For Life organization is to provide financial assistance to cancer patients and their families when traveling long distances to doctors and hospitals. In addition, they educate and inspire these patients and families concerning cancer survival and recovery. 

I plan on writing more about these two great organizations very soon but I am just too tired to do it tonight.   I did want to get these links up ASAP so I wrote this quick post.  Have a good night.
