Our Voice

Team U2FP continues building its roster for the Bank of America Chicago Marathon, on Sunday, October 10, 2021. We've already filled several spots, but we want you and your friends to join us! As one of the official charity teams for the Bank of America Chicago Marathon 2021, we provide guaranteed entries for the race in return for your commitment to fundraise for Spinal Cord Injury Research.

Anyone who’s experienced a life-altering trauma has this knowledge that sometimes things go terribly wrong. The lingering grief resides a couple of layers down, but the knowledge is always right there. Like a phantom doorway out on the corner of your mind. For me, this persistent knowledge requires a choice. Do I just acknowledge that it's there and go on about my business, do I ignore it or do I use it as fuel for change?

Check out this great new grant opportunity from our friends at the Neilsen Foundation, starting just after the new year!

As promised, we've just made public the first of six video segments from our Working 2 Walk Virtual Symposium this past October. If you weren't able to join us then, you can now watch the Clinical Research portion of the symposium on our video library page (or on our YouTube channel).
