SCS, a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization receives no government funds; instead it relies upon its volunteer chapters who raise money through community involvement. 100% of the money donated to the SCS research fund goes to research only.This year, SCS made additional advancements with the development of a cellular delivery system that produces neurotrophins within the transplants. Additionally, a culture of oligodendrocyte precursor cells (OPC’s) has been produced. The second master combination trial begins this summer and will include these original contributions. Your contribution will help to raise the necessary dollars needed to finance this expensive medical research, allowing people who live with paralysis, realize their dream of walking again.

For more information about the event, including sponsorship packages, or how you can help send me your email and I'll be glad to send you an event brochure!
