Fred Dick's Fundraiser
$0 towards $500
Join Fred Dick in Supporting Bridging Bionics' Athletes!
My name is Fred Dick and I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease. At BBF, I really enjoy the interactions I have with all the staff. It is great getting to know a little bit about everyone here. My mobility sessions give me something to do socially, but it also helps me with movement. My core strength has improved a lot since I started. I like to push myself at therapy and I feel like my everyday life has just gotten easier. It has been really cool because all of the things we work on in therapy are applicable to activities for daily living. If I see an obstacle at home, I say to myself “yes, I can step over that” or “I can pick that up off the ground and carry it”! My confidence has increased so much because everything we do here also applies to what I do at home. My goal in therapy right now is to do a little bit more each time I come to therapy. If Maria says to do 3 reps, I try to do 4!
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!
