Join Team Robert Browne!

The LBSA encourages everyone to get behind Robert Browne and his family in their efforts to help him overcome the spinal cord injury he suffered while surfing here in Long Beach. Robert's courage and determination to regain full use of his arms and legs is inspiring, but he needs our help!

From the Team Robert Browne website:

Team Robert Browne was formed by friends and family in response to an unfortunate surfing accident. Our goal is to raise money in order to assist Robert and the Browne family in paying for medical and living expenses related to Robert’s disabling spinal cord injury.

"On July 3, 2014, Robert started his day following his passion of surfing in his hometown of Long Beach, New York. 

To avoid colliding with, and potentially injuring a young lady, Robert dove off his board hitting a sand bar and shattering his C5 and C6 vertebrate with shards affecting his spinal cord suffering a serious spinal injury.

Robert has lost the use of his legs and is restricted to a wheel chair, he is currently battling to regain use of his legs with physical therapy and has limited use of his hands."

Besides the enormous medical costs, the family is also struggling to rebuild their home after Sandy, and more renovations will now be needed to retrofit the home for wheelchair access. Want to help? Consider donating directly by clicking here: and following TeamRobertBrowne on facebook:
