Due to the generosity of our friends and sponsors, we have been able to continue to meet our goals for 2020. We were able to help with two major individual grant requests (one for a van purchase and one for a special bath chair). In addition, we made our annual contributions to the spinal cord injury research centers at both UK and UL.
Your donations help further the mission of our organization. It is because of your efforts and hundreds of others that we are the largest organization in Kentucky raising funds for spinal cord injury and are able to help provide the following programs;
