About the Bryon Riesch Paralysis FoundationOn April 25, 1998, the life of Marquette University student Bryon Riesch, changed forever. A devastating accident left Bryon paralyzed from the chest down, with limited use of his arms. In order to assist Bryon and his family through a difficult time, friends and family quickly pulled together to help with a fundraiser. Those same friends and family have now helped to form the Bryon Riesch Paralysis Foundation (BRPF) to help others faced with a similar situation.
Established in January of 2001, the BRPF is a 501(c)3 that has utilized the tremendous support and community response that was demonstrated after Bryon’s injury. Since then, through donations and fundraisers close to $2,000,000 has been raised to go directly towards the fight against paralysis.
