Join Abel Ontiveros in Supporting Bridging Bionics' Athletes!


My name is Abel and I was in an accident that resulted in a spinal cord injury. I have been with Bridging Bionics since almost the beginning of the program. My most favorite part is the ability to get in a great workout here at Bridging Bionics, and it feels so beneficial to both my physical and emotional well-being. Each session, I work with the trainer to start on the Nustep recumbent bike and then I have my mobility session with a PT afterwards. This is a great cardio workout and I feel much more flexible and I get rid of any muscle stiffness I am experiencing. During my therapy session, we use the Galileo vibrational tilt table. Not only do I feel much more relaxed, the vibration decreases my spasticity. Overall, it is just a pleasure to work with the BBF trainer and all of the therapists each week!

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!
