The Gridiron Heroes Spinal Cord Injury Foundation was formed in 2003 with a specific mission to provide immediate, as well as, long term resources and support to individuals sustaining catastrophic spinal cord injury through activities associated with high school football. Gridiron Heroes has provided invaluable support for many families who have found themselves in this life-changing situation.
On June 18, 2010, the Eels on Wheels and two members of the Gridiron Heroes will travel to Bonaire, a small island near Aruba that is one of the world's premiere diving locations. By providing the experience and expertise of training and diving with people with disabilities, Eels on Wheels hopes that the injured athletes will enjoy an experience that goes beyond just a vacation, inspiring and encouraging them to continue striving for a full and active life.
