The Woody Foundation has been very busy these past few months including the following highlights:
Thanks to our many donors for making all of these gifts possible & we look forward to a very successful Woody Golf Classic to continue our legacy of helping our spinal cord injured community. The Woody Foundation, Inc. is a 501 (C) (3) not for profit organization formed in 2011 to raise funds for the recovery of people with spinal cord injuries. The namesake of The Woody Foundation – James “Woody” Beckham – suffered his spinal cord injured while playing rugby with his college club team in January 2011. His family and friends bonded together to support Woody by making donations to the Foundation which help many persons in our community live more comfortably.
