During the 2016 sponsorship season for off-road racing, Jesi Stracham reached out to Justified Cultures, a clothing company out of Arizona, using a sponsorship website. Dundee, Justified Cultures owner, saw how unique Jesi and her story were. Together they created a clothing line with the proceeds being received by SCI Patients to help them get back to an independent life after inpatient rehabilitation. After searching for a place to send the funds, Dundee came up with the idea to co-found the Wheel With Me Foundation, so that we can personally help each person.
The Wheel With Me Foundation is focused on a growing community of men and women impacted with spinal cord injury (SCI). Our mission is to bridge the gap between inpatient rehabilitation and independent living through activism with an ultimate goal of constructing a transitional home for to bridge the gap between inpatient rehabilitation and the real world. The residents of the Wheel With Me Campus will be accompanied by a caring staff member ready to coach them through their journey. Each resident will learn wheelchair skills, how to address and overcome daily obstacles, and care for themselves while fostering their own personal development. Upon graduation the resident will be confident reintegrating into their home, community, and workplace.
