Raise money for Walk & Roll for SCI
After sustaining a severe neck and spinal cord injury in October of 2018, Jeffrey Feinstein, dad of 3, has gone through two intensive phases of rehab, as well as outpatient rehab, at TIRR (The Institute for Rehabilitation and Research), one of the best rehabilitation facilities in the nation that specializes in spinal cord injuries. Jeffrey has daily physical and occupational therapy, has been able to go back to work, and has celebrated multiple family celebrations and holidays at home with his family, because of the therapists and technological advancements available at TIRR Memorial Hermann.
Alli and Jeffrey Feinstein have created this fundraising event to provide active gear and assistive technology equipment to spinal cord injury patients at TIRR Memorial Hermann, through the TIRR Foundation. These adaptive technologies enhanced Jeffrey’s ability to get back to work quicker, assisted in holding/grasping hand weights and workout equipment easier, and have supported him in using a manual chair. These products impact patients’ everyday lives, both at home and the work place, however there is a significant cost barrier. Their goal is to bring these product to more kids and adults living with SCI, and give them a much fuller sense of life.
In the first Walk & Roll for SCI event in 2019, we were able to raise over $100,000 for the TIRR Foundation, including a assistive technology scholarships available at the TIRR Memorial Hermann Kirby Glen Assistive Technology and Upper Extremity NeuroRecovery Lab, for those in need; we also gifted 10 iPads to TIRR so that patients who are at high risk for COVID and unable to see family, are able to communicate regularly via FaceTime. In 2020, we are putting fundraising efforts on hold, and focusing on celebrating the SCI community, but will be re-focus on a robust fundraise in 2021.
Thank you for your support in bringing these life-changing products to those in need!
