ABOUT THE RODNEY ROGERS FOUNDATION
The Rodney Rogers Foundation (TRRF) is a non-profit 501c3 organization located in Timberlake, North Carolina. Durham native Rodney Rogers created the foundation for the purpose of assisting individuals who are also currently experiencing life in a paralyzed condition. The Foundation aims to assist those experiencing a life of paralysis by funding projects that provide direct services to those affected by spinal cord injury. Rodney plans to use his "Voice" as a means of empowerment and mobility for individuals experiencing paralysis and his plans are that his foundation raises financial support for patients that cannot afford the high cost of rehabilitation and treatment. TRRF plans are to assist with resources, raise funds and awareness until the day such are no longer necessary.
ABOUT THE BRIAN GRANT FOUNDATION
