NeuAbility recruits volunteers from the community to assist with our two fundraising events each year. Former volunteers have been impassioned community members for our cause and our participants.
Colorado Gives Day
Tuesday, December 4th | All Day
Colorado Gives Day has grown to be the state’s largest one-day online giving event, raising more than $182 million since it began in 2010. Additionally, the $1 Million incentive fund allows your dollar to go further, by providing partial match on each dollar donated.
We encourage donors to choose us on, or before, December 4th. We are a nonprofit that walks the walk, doesn’t pay ridiculous administrative salaries and is laser-focused on improving the lives of those with paralysis.
Help us to reach our goal of $20,000 by giving today.
NeuAbility is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. A holistic exercise-based therapy program offering hope, independence, for individuals living with a spinal cord injury. While the benefits of programs like ours are recognized by the medical community, unfortunately insurance companies still do not.
Although NeuAbility has progressive grant and foundational support, we ultimately rely on individual donors and community members tax–deductible donations to support our work. Our organization hosts two annual fundraising events, Rounds for Recovery – golf tournament, and Hops for Hope – Beer and Wine Tasting Gala. Donations can be made in any form, some of which are financial contributions, auction items, and corporate sponsorships.
If you would like more information on donating or becoming a sponsor, please call us at 303-286-0918 or email us.
Intern Assistant Program
As a part of our one-on-one programs, NeuAbility schedules one Adaptive Exercise Specialist, and one Intern Assistant per client. This Intern Assistant position is an unpaid student from a local university, studying exercise science, physiology, or related programs. Students typically receive school credit for the hours spent working within our programs through their respective university.
Intern programs are strictly designed to not only provide hands-on experience to the student, but also to assist in the education of exercise and the resulting effects on spinal cord injuries. Students follow a specific curriculum and are required to complete assignments and study peer-reviewed journal articles that relate current research to the NeuAbility program. We staff for 4-5 full-time Intern Assistant positions year-round, which has consisted of anywhere from 4-25 individuals (either full or part-time). If you would like more information on our program, please email us.
