Video news: Clothes for the seated, skate boarding, and more

This edition of our video newsletter is about summer safety. The Foundation's Paralysis Population survey revealed that of the over 1.2 million people living with spinal cord injuries, 16% were injured through a sporting or recreational accident.

Our information specialists do not look forward to the summer season. Sadly, our telephone (800-539-7309 Mon.-Fri., 9 am to 6 pm ET) rings way too often with someone looking for our assistance with a new injury. With that in mind, we have put together tips for you and for you to share with your kids.

Watch it now!

Also in this issue:

Clothes for the seated
Meet Sophie Morgan. A breathtakingly beautiful British young woman who is an artist, model, and outspoken advocate for people living with disabilities. She visited the Foundation recently with Canadian Designer Izzy Camilleri. They are revolutionizing clothing for what they call their "seated clientele."

Taking flight
Able Flight, one of the Foundation's Quality of Life grant recipients, was created by pilots who believe that learning to fly can change your life, and they wanted to share that experience with people living with disabilities.

Taking your chair into a skate park
Our Life Rolls On subsidiary runs a program called They Will Skate Again -- teaching people living with paralysis that they can accomplish more than they ever thought.

Join Team Reeve
Check out the promo we've put together about our athletic fundraising effort -- Team Reeve. You can take any sport you're passionate about from running to bike riding to swimming and turn it into a way to help others. We'll show you how.

Enjoy the summer. Be safe! Watch the video.
