Our Voice

Team U2FP is building its roster for next year - and we're looking for runners and wheelers to join our ranks for the Bank of America Chicago Marathon 2023. Please consider joining us. Then share this opportunity on your social media channels, with your friends and family, along with those in your work and faith communities. Training for a marathon while helping to advance curative therapies for those with an SCI is a great way to kick off the New Year!

As 2022 draws to a close, many of our supporters are planning for their year-end charitable contributions. I wanted to make our SCI Community aware of some incentives that can help you maximize your gift. Take a look at these giving options as you consider supporting...

We know that the work isn’t done, though. Epidural stimulation is likely just one piece in a broader strategy of combinatorial therapies that will need to include biological and/or pharmacological interventions (e.g. stem cells, etc.). That’s why we work to facilitate a holistic ecosystem of SCI individuals, clinicians, scientists and investors who are collaborating in new ways with one another, leading to exciting possibilities, and better, faster outcomes. Here are just a few examples of this sort of work from the past year:

You are part of this community. You endure the unseen difficulties of living with this injury. Or you work long hours in a lab, or at a foundation or biotech startup, trying to understand and alleviate the suffering of those who live with an SCI. Many of you inhabit more than one of these roles. And every time we collaborate, we get closer to functional recovery. U2FP knows we can't do this alone. We need everyone's voice in equal measure. That's why we need you.
