Organization Spotlight: Independence Regained

A Louisiana man named Scott Wells, who was paralyzed in a car accident 14 years ago, is setting out to raise funds for people recovering from spinal cord injuries. He will be handcycling throughout Northern Louisiana in order to raise funds to create a neurological rehab facility in Shreveport, which would be the first of its kind in Louisiana. 

He is securing the funds to create a neurological facility through his non-profit, Independence Regained. He hopes to raise $50,000.00 from this 180 mile bike ride. He's been training with physical trainer, Amanda Mahoney who will join him on the last leg of his trip.
