Our inspiration to help others comes from other groups and individuals who have touched our lives and made a difference along the way. There are countless people making a difference in the every day lives of others with physical disabilities. It is their passion and dedication that inspires SpineCore Foundation to work to inspire others. Here are some of those groups that we hold a special connection to:
Craig Hospital in Denver, Colorado, is a world-renowned rehabilitation hospital that exclusively specializes in the neuro-rehabilitation and research of patients with spinal cord injury (SCI) andbrain injury (BI). Craig is a not-for-profit, free-standing, national center of excellence that has treated more than 31,000 patients with SCI and BI since 1956.
Adaptive Adventures was founded in 1999 by two individuals with physical disabilities. They saw a need for adventure and sport opportunities outside of competitive adaptive sports for people with physical disabilities. Adaptive Adventures has served over 100,000 participants and their families from all 50 states.
The Kelly Brush Foundation (KBF) is dedicated to making active lifestyles a reality for those who have experienced a spinal cord injury. We offer the inspiration to believe and the grants to enable anyone to buy the equipment they need to get out and go. But the KBF funds more than just recreation, because when you’re out there on the hill, road or trail, as your heart rate rises and you feel the wind on your face, disability fades away. An active lifestyle forges connections with others — both new friends and old, in and out of a chair.
