61North_200There’s always meaning in a song, and a story behind the band that performs it. Check out the story behind 61 North. They aren’t your average band — their guitarist, Ryan “Gooch” Nelson is a C7 quadriplegic. If you love their story, check them out in October when the band will host their 2nd annual 61 North Benefit Concert for Spinal Cord Injury.

Since interning with the Foundation, my ears perk up and my eyes widen when I hear or see an amazing story about someone with a spinal cord injury. Read up about some of these success stories in the Tell Us Your Story section of the site.
