In the United States, there are over 7,500 young athletes suffering from career ending and life threatening spinal cord injuries (SCI). These paralyzed athletes have lost the ability to use their legs to walk or even stand and sometimes with neck injuries, they even lose the use of their arms. They are individuals who pushed their bodies to gain athletic ability who are now pushing themselves in wheelchairs for the rest of their lives. They never expected to walk again.
Now there is amazing bionic technology being manufactured that change that assumption in miraculous ways. Incredible advances in medical technology are making it possible for SCI victims to walk again on their own two feet. We are dedicated to raising funds to help paralyzed athletes afford this life changing opportunity. Initially developed for paraplegics, paralyzed from the waist down, there is now computer interfacing that allows even some individuals with paralyzing neck injuries the freedom to walk again.
This is a life changing opportunity that gives individuals the chance to walk again. In doing so, they gain a new perspective on life, not the least of which is the ability for them to finally look their family, peers, and colleagues eye to eye.
