Founded in 2002 by Champion Drag Racer Darrell Gwynn and his wife Lisa, the Darrell Gwynn Foundation's mission is to provide AWARENESS, PREVENTION, SUPPORT and ultimately a CURE for paralysis.

Darrell Gwynn was injured in a drag car accident 20 years ago and was paralyzed. He began the foundation in 2002. We have two main programs: a wheelchair donation program and an education program.

In the past two years, we have donated over 55 high-tech, customized, motor wheelchairs. Many of the individuals who receive these wheelchairs live in constant pain or risk further spine damage due to old and ill-fitting wheelchairs. We drastically improve their quality of life by providing them with custom fit wheelchairs that provide them the safety, comfort and independence they deserve. Often the chairs cost between $15,000 and $25,000 and insurance will not cover those costs.

The education program provides information on how to prevent spinal cord injuries. Speeches and presentations are given around the nation in schools.

Here is the official description of the Foundation:
Founded in 2002 by Champion Drag Racer Darrell Gwynn and his wife Lisa, the Darrell Gwynn Foundation's mission is to provide AWARENESS, PREVENTION, SUPPORT and ultimately a CURE for paralysis.

In an effort to create more awareness about spinal cord injuries, the Darrell Gwynn Foundation successfully lobbied for an established Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Week with a resolution passed by the Florida Legislature in 2006.

The foundation operates an Education & Prevention Program directed to high school students to educate them on the dangers of risky behavior that can lead to spinal cord injuries. This rapidly growing program reaches over 10,000 students annually at over 50 high schools.

The foundations primary support program is its national Wheelchair Donation Program. With this program the Darrell Gwynn Foundation has donated custom built wheelchairs valued at over $1 million collectively to those in need.

The foundation also maintains a model Paralyzed Assistance Fund offering support services and tools at Craig Hospital in Englewood, Colorado with aspirations to expand this model to several hospitals nationwide. Additionally the foundation provides financial support through its Fast Track Laboratories with the Miami Project to Cure Paralysis aimed at finding a cure for paralysis. With tremendous fundraising partners such as Barrett-Jackson, the NHRA, NASCAR and many more generous sponsors, individual supporters and donors, the Darrell Gwynn Foundation continues to evolve as a leading foundation for those with spinal cord injuries.
