Former Rutgers University player Eric LeGrand and Tony Award-winning actor John Larroquette are featured in public service announcements (PSA) from the Kessler Foundation that started running on TV earlier this year.

LeGrand was playing football for Rutgers when he was severely injured on a tackle in 2010. Paralyzed from the chest down, he is working to regain his strength and mobility. He has returned to college and is pursuing his passion for sports by training for a career in sports broadcasting. LeGrand also speaks to children and adults about developing their abilities and following their dreams.

Larroquette was inspired to join Kessler Foundation’s campaign through his friend, actor Daryl “Chill” Mitchell, the star of Kessler’s 2011 PSAs. Mitchell, a wheelchair user since he was paralyzed in a motorcycle accident, has developed his abilities by adding producing, directing and disability advocacy to his résumé.

This month, the foundation is sharing other people’s stories of their abilities at kesslerfoundation.org.
