Darrell Gwynn Ventures
a world champion drag racer in the 1980’s, Darrell Gwynn was at the top
of his game and chose to donate a portion of his winnings to The Miami
Project to Cure Paralysis. He felt so strongly about Marc Buoniconti’s
struggle to find a cure for paralysis, and the plight of those suffering
from paralyzing spinal cord injuries, that he personally placed the
iconic Miami Project wheelchair logo in a prime location on his race car
to show his support.
In April 1990, his life changed dramatically after a devastating racing
accident which caused his paralysis. Following his accident, Gwynn
established the Darrell Gwynn Foundation which provided support for
people with paralysis and worked to prevent spinal cord injuries through
their Wheelchair Donation Program and Education & Prevention Program.
In 2015, Darrell felt that it was time to “go home” and has become the
Director of the Darrell Gwynn Quality of Life Chapter
of The Buoniconti Fund to Cure Paralysis. The Chapter will continue
quality of life initiatives, and assist The Buoniconti Fund in their
role to raise funds and awareness to support The Miami Project to Cure
