Why should you care? Well, if you know my son Roman, you know he is 100% dedicated to finding a cure for paralysis—and is working with government, education, private charity– and advocates like you– to get the vital research funded.
In Sacramento, our wheelchair warrior is fighting for Assembly Bill 1931 (Torrico), to keep the government funding going there. In the education world, he is working with the Stanford Partnership for Spinal Cord Injury and Repair.
And now—a spectacular golf tournament– to raise some bucks for the Stanford effort.

Jim Harbaugh, Stanford Cardinals Head Coach, and Jeff Tedford, Head Coach of the Cal Bears, will put aside their eternal college rivalry– to compete with golf clubs!
