Imagine A Gift from Your Greatest Nightmare
More Than Walking is a U.S. 501(c)3 non-profit organization with a mission to promote independent living after spinal cord injury worldwide by sharing the experiences of active peer-mentors and expert rehabilitation professionals.
We support an international community of spinal cord injury peer mentors to create online videos and share local information that inspires and equips newly injured patients to pursue independent living.
Our vision is that people living with spinal cord injuries can advocate for their own independence, pursue life goals, and lead their communities towards greater accessibility and equal treatment for all. Learn more about our story and team.
Becoming paralyzed was the biggest challenge I ever had to face. Now, I wouldn’t have it any other way because of all that I have gained and been able to give in return. I hope you find the same to be true, no matter what darkness you may be wading through.
