On July 7, 2016, Justin Bennett’s life changed. While vacationing with family in the Outer Banks, North Carolina, Justin dove into a wave and hit his head on a sandbar and suffered a C4/C5 spinal cord injury; Justin was paralyzed from the chest down. Justin was air-lifted to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital where he underwent spinal fusion surgery and for the next two and a half weeks, began his recovery; Justin was then flown to Shepherd Center in Atlanta, Georgia, where he stayed for the next three months to endure intensive physical and occupational therapy. Justin returned to Richmond in early November and since that time, has continued his physical and occupational therapy at Sheltering Arms Rehabilitation Hospital and has also added a strength building workout to his weekly therapy programs. Justin continues to progress and gets stronger every day.

Justin grew up in Richmond, Virginia. Before his accident, Justin was extremely active, an avid golfer and outdoor enthusiast. Justin is equally passionate about his career, and by the time he was 25, he had attained his CPA license. Justin is a very determined man and is working extremely hard to get back to the productive life he cherishes along with the support of his family and friends.
