United Spinal Association is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life of all people living with a spinal cord injury or disease (SCI/D).
ARCTIC TO ARGENTINA
On Dec. 5, 2017, approximately 15 and a half months after he set off from Prudhoe Bay, Alaska, Ian Andersen completed one of the most epic fundraising efforts for United Spinal Association ever. Andersen cycled over 15,000 miles, from above the arctic circle to the southernmost city in the world, Ushuaia, Argentina, to help raise more than $22,000 dollars for the organization..
Rolling For A Cause
In December 2017, United Spinal Association sent a delegation to Puerto Rico to provide disaster relief from Hurricane Maria to wheelchair users and other people with disabilities so they can regain their independence and quality of life.
United Spinal offered relief grants and distributed essential supplies and care items, including inverters to load wheelchairs; solar lamps; batteries; containers for loading gasoline; as well other medical equipment necessary for wheelchair users.

BREAKING DOWN BARRIERS
United Spinal Association’s Arizona chapter gathered for an inaugural ‘Roll on Arizona’s Capitol’ on January 22, 2018 to advocate for progressive legislation that would bring down barriers and benefit wheelchair users and all people living with disabilities.
United Spinal member advocates, many of whom use wheelchairs, encouraged Arizona legislators to pass a bill that requires a minimum of wheelchair accessible bathrooms in apartment buildings.

Roll On Capitol Hill
Roll on Capitol Hill is United Spinal’s annual legislative advocacy event that addresses issues that impact the health, independence and quality of life of individuals living with spinal cord injuries and disorders.
Every summer our member advocates visit with and educate Congressional leaders about the policy issues affecting the spinal cord injury and disorders (SCI/D) community.
We're Rolling For Our Rights
United Spinal Association and Hollister, Inc., have teamed up to create a national network of peer support groups called the “Spinal Network”. Spinal Network Support Groups provide peer to peer support for individuals, friends, caregivers and family members.
