Lunch is on us
We serve light breakfast snacks, an awesome lunch, and water throughout the day for registered athletes and volunteers.

We are dedicated to improving the quality of life for all living with spinal cord injuries and other disabilities. Through fellowship and community reintegration activity programs, we share knowledge and build confidence to show those affected with disabilities that a meaningful, productive life is still possible.
With a series of meetings and group challenges throughout the year, we spark members' faith in self so that it ignites into a bonfire of courage – and a beacon of light for the next person who needs it.
This is all thanks to the vision of our Founder and Executive Director, Christopher Salas. His dedication has helped hundreds of individuals adjust to life after spinal cord injury as well as educate hundreds of nurses and therapists on the do's and don'ts when it comes to treating those with spinal cord injuries. He has been recognized by United Way as San Antonio's Volunteer of the Year; by the Christopher Reeve Foundation as an official peer mentor; and inducted into Morgan Wonderland's "walk of fame."
