Our annual Winter Golf Classic is a great way to help our injured and have a great time with Co-workers, friends or family! 

Sponsorships are also available on all levels and are a great way for your business to market to a charitable audience. Sponsorships are tax deductible and make a huge difference for our Injured Programs!

 

Tighten The Drag Foundation is 100% volunteer so the funding we receive from our events will go directly into our Scholarship fund to award a variety of therapeutic programs that improve the quality of life for a person with a disabling spinal cord injury. Golf Tournaments are a great way to spend the day with friends and GIVE the GIFT OF HOPE to the Spinal Cord Injured. Spinal Cord Injuries happen suddenly and mainly as a result of accidents that can happen to anyone, but most often to young people. WITHOUT therapy outings and recovery programs, injured may be  destined to nursing homes or home health care. However,  WITH active and specialized exercise and recovery programs, they can maintain a healthy lifestyle to be able to continue doing the things that they enjoyed before their accidents. They are happier, healthier and able to be socially active. For more info on the upcoming tournament, click here...

To extend the OPPORTUNITY for recovery and a better quality of life for those who have suffered 

a life changing paralyzing Spinal Cord Injury as a result of a catastrophic accident. 

Spinal Cord Injuries

The average newly injured person with a spinal cord injury will incur 1 million dollars in medical costs in their first year. If you are injured at age 25, your estimated lifetime costs will exceed 5 million dollars.  The average yearly medical costs after the first year can average $50,000-$100,000 depending on the level of injury. 

​ There are approximately 17,500 new spinal cord injuries in the US every year. There are over a half million people living with spinal cord injuries (SCI) in the United States.

Every 38 minutes in our country, a person becomes paralyzed. Vehicle accidents are the leading cause, with Falls being the second leading cause.

Sports related injuries are less than 10% of all spinal cord injuries but of the 10%, diving accidents account for 7%. 

There are over 5.6 million people in the US living with some type of Paralysis caused by Stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, Cancer,

Spinal Cord Injury, Transverse Myelitis and other nervous system disorders. Roughly 1 in 50 people.
