Vendor Information and Application

 

Vendors are welcome at Tighten The Drag Foundation Charity events as space permits.

 

We welcome Vendors who are Sponsoring our event with a cash sponsorship or a donation of  product or service  valued at $500 or above that is of interest to our target audience.

 

Vendors may provide informational brochures, business cards, promotional products or other information about their business that will be placed in our event Swag Bags. This gives our participants an opportunity to review your information at their leisure. We encourage you to provide a discount coupon or special "VIP" opportunity to foster leads.

 

We will list your business as a Vendor on our website between events and will recognize your company across our social media platforms.

 

Being a part of our "team" is a WIN-WIN for all and most especially for the Spinal Cord Injured whom we support through scholarships to attend the very necessary therapy they need for recovery.

 

THANK YOU for your interest!

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,
