Join Heather Van Diepen in Supporting Bridging Bionics' Athletes!


I just love the Physical Therapists at Bridging Bionics and I especially enjoy the Galileo vibrational plate. I think it really helps with my Parkinson’s symptoms as the vibration gives my muscles more feedback and it helps to wake everything up! I can tell the vibration increases my range of motion and decreases my muscle tightness. Emotionally, I feel that the BBF staff are super understanding, kind, compassionate, and empathetic. If I am having a bad day, we just slow things down and they meet me where I am at that day. Plus, I get to bring my dog to my mobility sessions!!

I really appreciate the open communication I have with the PTs and I can really tell they support me. Since I have started at BBF, I have accomplished many goals and I feel stronger! This past winter, my goal was to snowboard and I was able to go 6 times this season. Now we are working on increasing the mobility in my left hand and left foot so I can have a smoother gait when I walk!

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 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,
