Enter the draw
You'll enter your chance to win.
The minimum cost of first year treatment for individuals with a Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) is $250,000, and almost none of that is covered by insurance.
Here’s your chance to help someone you know (or someone you don’t) receive the treatment they so desperately need, thanks to the incredible Mike Barwis, founder of BARWIS Neurological Reengineering Program (NRP), a personalized and proprietary methodology developed to assist in creating and re-establishing neurological pathways to increase neural stimulus and motor control. Mike is currently the Senior Advisor of Strength and Conditioning to the New York Mets and is the Director of Sports Science and Human Performance for the Detroit Red Wings; he was a former consultant for the Miami Dolphins. He’s also an incredible human.
Mike has donated a personal evaluation with him, as well as two follow up Neurological Re-engineering sessions with a BARWIS Methods Trainer for the winner of this sweepstakes. If you know someone with an SCI, this is your chance to enter to win an incredible gift for them. If you don’t know someone with an SCI, we hope you will consider making a donation anyway, and if you win, gifting this incredible prize back to Walking With Anthony, to gift to a recipient in need.
Net proceeds from this sweepstakes help Walking With Anthony provide rehabilitation, care giving, special equipment and emergency funds directly to individuals and families impacted by Spinal Cord Injuries. In this case, they will also directly help a recipient receive personal care from Mike & his team.
Walking With Anthony believes that everyone with a spinal cord injury (SCI) should have equal access to life-altering medical care. We provide direct and immediate assistance to individuals and families through our granting programs.
Although proven therapies and solutions for those with Spinal Cord Injuries (SCI) are already in existence, they are largely unavailable to the average person suffering from an SCI. The cost of getting just one person out of a wheelchair are exorbitant, and insurance doesn’t cover any of it. Our goal is to change that: with a focus is on Recovery Through Rehab.
With your help, our heroes with SCI can get through the hopeless despair and get the financial assistance for the treatment they desperately need. Much hard work lies ahead for families affected by SCI, in order to lead them back to living healthy, thriving (even walking) lives. With your help, we can take these first steps… together.
