Todd Crawford sustained a spinal cord injury (SCI) in 2002, and after years of support from his family and friends, created The Todd Crawford Foundation to support research toward spinal cord research.  Crawford says on the Foundation's website, "Science is discovering new spinal cord repair methods that may one day completely repair damage cause by SCI.  One research group that has contributed tremendously to this advancement is the Kentucky Spinal Cord Injury Research Center (KSCIRC) located here in Louisville.  Since we believe so adamantly in the KSCIRC, we will direct much of our efforts to support their research."


The Todd Crawford Foundation is a 501(c )(3) not-for-profit organization dedicated to raising money and awareness for spinal cord injury research.  All donations and entry fees are tax deductible.
