"After seeing first-hand the impact of the Reeve Foundation's efforts, I am proud to represent an organization that is doing such amazing things for those living with spinal cord injury, as well as for their families and caregivers," said Annable. "Although I am not personally affected by paralysis, I have learned that life can change in an instant, which is why I have decided to join the Reeve Foundation in educating the public about all of its invaluable resources."

"Dave's combination of talent and charm, along with his dedication and reach to a younger demographic, makes him the perfect person to join our crusade," said Peter T. Wilderotter, president and CEO of the Reeve Foundation. "We are thrilled to welcome Dave as not only a friend of the Reeve Foundation, but as an advocate for the paralysis community."
