our story

edstrong foundation

In September of 2018, founder Edwin Munoz sustained a spinal cord injury in a diving accident at Lake Belton. That, nearly fatal dive, initially left him paralyzed from the neck down. As an uninsured patient, getting access to therapy and equipment was hard and unimaginably expensive. Edwin was able to raise funds thanks to an incredible support system made up of family and friends. The money raised was just enough to cover 1 year worth of therapy. Instead of stretching the money to last the year, he purchased the equipment needed for the recovery. What started as a personal fundraiser birthed the idea of helping many others on the same journey to walk again. The Edstrong Foundation is now a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a mission to help and accompany those with paralysis throughout their journey.

Thanks to our amazing donors, within six months, a facility was built from the ground up!  We are committed to offer rehab exercise programs, provide resources and community to those with spinal cord injuries and other neurological disabilities. We as a family and foundation firmly believe that life can still be lived to the fullest regardless of disability. Join us in changing lives!
a word from the founder

"The heart of man plans his way, but the LORD establishes his steps.” - Proverbs 16:9

Hello everyone! Let me start by saying that this foundation was made possible with amazing support from family and friends. Just like many that suffered a spinal cord injury, my life changed in the blink of an eye. There is no way to prepare for sudden life changes as this but it shines light on the inner warrior that each of us possesses. I’ve learned through my personal experiences that the word “impossible” is just a figment of our imagination. Anything is possible with enough hard work and dedication!

My goal for the foundation is to provide help through rehabilitative exercise, financial assistance, and more importantly community. I want to show those with paralysis that life can still be lived to the absolute fullest regardless of disability! I am excited to accompany many on their journey to accomplish things they were once told would be impossible.

We do not get to choose what events interrupt our life, but we can choose how they affect us. Let’s get to work!
