Life Rolls On to host surf event at Wrightsville Beach

WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC (WECT) – The Life Rolls On Foundation will host a surf event in Wrightsville Beach Saturday geared towards providing people with spinal cord injuries an opportunity to surf.

"They Will Surf Again" is Life Rolls On's signature quality of life program that empowers paraplegics and quadriplegics with the opportunity to experience mobility by surfing with the assistance of adaptive equipment and dedicated volunteers.

"I can't wait for this year's They Will Surf Again at Wrightsville Beach," said local event leader and Life Rolls On volunteer Kevin Murphy. According to Murphy, this event will be the "biggest and best ever" done in North Carolina.

There will be a film screening Friday night at Wrightsville Beach Park Amphitheater about the foundation's founder Jesse Billauer.

They Will Surf Again is a free event and welcomes all ages and experience levels. For more information, visit
