The Todd Crawford Foundation to Cure Paralysis, Inc.

www.toddcrawfordfoundation.orgThe Todd Crawford Foundation was started in August of 2006 with the purpose of raising money for spinal cord injury (SCI) research. I was injured in August of 2002. In the four years between my injury and the creation of the Foundation I received a tremendous amount of support from my family and friends. Much of the support came in the form of money raised through various fund raisers. I have been able to accomplish many things since then because of this support. I am extremely grateful for this. Now I want to use the momentum of this support and direct it towards research on SCI. This research is a immensely important to me and millions of others around the world.

Kentucky Physical Therapy Association The first physical therapist arrived in Kentucky in 1935. Within the next few years Mary McDonnell was joined by 15 of her colleagues. They came to fight the crippling effects of polio. They touched the lives of World War II veterans whose bodies were mangled and broken. In 1947, feeling the need to unite and expand their knowledge, they founded the Kentucky Chapter of the American Physical Therapy Association. These pioneers could only dream their association, which started with 16 members, would grow to serve over 1,000.
