Darlene Cook's Fundraiser
$500 towards $500
Join Darlene Cook in Supporting Bridging Bionics' Athletes!
My name is Darlene and I am a relatively new athlete to Bridging Bionics, I started about 6 months ago. My most favorite part about BBF are the people!! They are extremely helpful and knowledgeable. They are teaching me how I can help my body through electrical muscle stimulation and vibration. We have been putting electrodes on my lower legs and this helps send signals to my brain of where legs are in space! Because of neuropathy, I do not have sensation on the sides of my lower legs but after weeks of using electrodes, I have regained some sensation!
My biggest accomplishment is being able to stand on the Galileo Vibration platform without holding on! This helps increase my confidence with standing balance and walking on my own. We are now working on not putting too much weight in my hands and arms when I am walking with my walker. Yesterday, I walked a mile in under an hour!!!
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!
