Join Joe Porcaro in Supporting Bridging Bionics' Athletes!


I have an incomplete spinal cord injury and a genetic condition called Neurofibromatosis type two which produces tumors along my central nervous system. My accident was eight years ago and I have been with Bridging Bionics for five years. The location of the Snowmass facility is amazing as I live right down the road. All of the physical therapists are wonderful as they have all taken turns treating me. Before I joined Bridging Bionics, I saw at least 8 different physical therapists up and down the valley. They always prescribed the same exercises with little to no pain relief and I was definitely not getting better. At BBF, the physical therapists are all willing to try new and innovative techniques with a rare set of equipment that most facilities do not have access to.

I have been with the program for five years and we are still trying different things and I am getting stronger without the associated pain. Overall, Bridging Bionics is a large part of my social life and I have built relationships with the other athletes and physical therapists within the program. This program drives me everyday to be the best version of myself I can!

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!

I Appreciate Your Help,
