During the year & especially in September (National Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Month) our Injured will be walking or rolling WITH YOU 
using adaptive equipment to assist them. Those who have recovered to the point that they no longer need supportive harnesses but can walk with other types of walking assists will also join in.
Won't you show them you support their efforts to recover by becoming part of TEAM TIGHTEN and walking with us?

Mission Statement:

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.
