Meet our new Social Media Strategist - Jordon Bolton

I am Jordan Bolton from Apple Valley, Minnesota - and I’m U2FP’s new Social Media Strategist!

Three years ago, I was paralyzed from the neck down while a student at Lake Region State College in North Dakota. I suffered a C-4 and C-5 Spinal cord injury one night during a party with my basketball teammates and was given only a 5% chance of any recovery.

After being airlifted to Minnesota, I immediately began working on getting back on my feet as soon as possible. I committed to an everyday training schedule along with getting my Associate of Arts degree in the process. 

Prior to my injury in February 2018, I was a full time collegiate basketball player, working on getting a degree in law. I was in student senate, honors society, and diversity club.

Now I try to motivate people who follow my recovery journey on social media. After to you confirm that you follow U2FP on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, feel free to follow me as well if you like (Instagram, Facebook and Twitter). I’m excited to use my social media influence to help U2FP grow the movement for cures!
