Austin, a proud Marine from Iowa, suffered a serious spinal cord injury in a night-time training parachute jump. Only 25 years old, he is now paralyzed from the neck down. Austin spent several months undergoing rehabilitation treatment at the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab in Chicago.
Due to the generosity of the Time Savers – SALUTE, INC. golf outing sponsors and donors, (in particular the Palatine Hills Golf Association), SALUTE, was able to purchase a used adaptive van for Austin, thereby allowing him to be discharged from the hospital and return home to his wife and family. With this life-changing gift, Austin is able to move his recovery forward in the comfort of family and friends.
