Wings for Life World Run Ambassador Eric LeGrand: A Work of Art

Spinal Cord Injury: , ,

Former Rutgers football player Eric LeGrand was paralyzed in an October 16, 2010 college football game, fracturing his C-3 and C-4 vertebrae. Since then, he has been at the forefront of raising awareness for spinal cord injury research and is an ambassador for the Wings for Life World Run, a global race set for May 8 that is dedicated to finding a cure.

Recently, Eric allowed the Wings for Life Foundation into his home in New Jersey to see a side of him people may not know – how the artwork on his body symbolizes his strength and philosophy on life. On this day, Eric was in the process of getting a new set of tattoos – Zodiac symbols for his niece and nephew to celebrate their lives.

“There’s a lot of themes and purpose with my tattoos,” Eric explains. “My tattoos paint a picture of my body through the years – my interests, my family, things that matter to me the most.”
