Darrell Gwynn Quality of Life Chapter
The Darrell Gwynn Quality of Life Chapter was established in 2015, and is led by Director Darrell Gwynn.
As a world champion drag racer in the 1980’s, Darrell Gwynn was at the top of his game and chose to donate a portion of his winnings to The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis. He felt so strongly about Marc Buoniconti’s struggle to find a cure for paralysis, and the plight of those suffering from paralyzing spinal cord injuries, that he personally placed the iconic Miami Project wheelchair logo in a prime location on his race car to show his support.
In April 1990, his life changed dramatically after a devastating racing accident which caused his paralysis. Following his accident, Gwynn established the Darrell Gwynn Foundation which provided support for people with paralysis and worked to prevent spinal cord injuries through their Wheelchair Donation Program and Education & Prevention Program. In 2015, Darrell felt that it was time to “go home” and has become the Director of the Darrell Gwynn Quality of Life Chapter of The Buoniconti Fund to Cure Paralysis. The Chapter will continue quality of life initiatives, and assist The Buoniconti Fund in their role to raise funds and awareness to support The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis.
