BACKBONES exists to help people with spinal cord injury or disease (SCI/D) and their families connect with their communities. We do that by creating events and experiences that promote awareness and engage people of all

What We Do

Whether someone has just been injured or it’s been years, it feels great to connect with someone who’s been there. Share ideas on trying a new sport, employment, tips on parenting, college experiences, or accessible travel destinations…

BACKBONES helps bridge that connection by finding and pairing people with similar spinal cord injuries (SCI), backgrounds, experiences, and hobbies.

Through BACKBONES’ Connections even if you are the only person in your town or city with a SCI, you’re part of something bigger… an entire group of people connected by common experiences!
