Enter the draw
You'll enter your chance to win.
Are you #TeamJosh? Then you won’t want to miss your chance to get up close & personal with “Younger” star Nico Tortorella. Currently also starring on The Walking Dead: World Beyond, Nico will not only meet with you virtually, but will literally give you the Walking With Anthony shirt off their back (that they’re wearing in the PSA), and personally sign and dedicate it just for you!
Nico has been involved with Walking With Anthony for years, and was immediately “all in” when asked to participate in this campaign. Here’s your chance to support a cause close to Nico’s heart, win some one-on-one time with your favorite star and take home a personal item of their clothing.
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.
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.
