Join Jovan Castillo in Supporting Bridging Bionics' Athletes!


My name is Jovan and I suffered a spinal cord injury in 2018. I have been at BBF for about 9 months now. I enjoy my workouts each week because before BBF, that was something I really missed doing. I know that I am getting stronger coming to BBF and that means I can achieve more and do more!

One of my favorite memories at BBF was when I walked for the first time since my accident. Its been four years since I was upright taking steps and I was able to do that in the Lokomat robot at the Snowmass facility. I would have never thought that I would have the opportunity to walk in a robot without BBF and it just makes me so happy! At Bridging Bionics, I have been working on improving my transfers, increasing my core strength and correcting my posture. It is so important to me to have good transfers as that increases my independence and accessibility which in turn opens the door for many more opportunities.

For this reason, I wanted to pay it forward by helping fundraise for their '23 Bridging Mobility Campaign. I am asking for your support to help me raise my personal goal of $500. With 64% of the athletes that Bridging Bionics serves needing financial assistance, donations will go directly towards scholarships that will cover their annual $500 program fee. Overall, by mobilizing together, we hope to raise a total of $20,000 for this cause and any amount of donation counts!

By becoming a donor, you will be giving the gift of mobility to all Bridging Bionics' athletes and will ensure everyone has access to a healthier, physically active, socially connected and fulfilling life!
