RALPH‘S RIDERS FOUNDATION is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to enabling people living with spinal cord injury and paralysis to achieve their highest level of independence, health and personal fulfillment by providing peer guidance, resource information and a supporting network within the community.
RALPH’S RIDERS was founded in 2008 by Mayra Fornos in Los Angeles, California, in memory of her late husband Ralph. She wanted to create a community of exceptional individuals with spinal cord injuries and mobility impairments in Southern California to provide peer guidance, resource information, inspirational advice and a supporting network for other individuals in need. Each RIDER has a spinal cord injury or mobility impairment and has adjusted to life extremely well despite enormous obstacles, which gives each RIDER a unique perspective on life as well as an ability to set a great example for individuals in need.
