NeuroHope Wins “Impact 100” $100,000 Grant

NeuroHope is the Impact 100 of Greater Indianapolis “Changemaker of the Year”, and recipient of a $100,000 grant to purchase equipment for an adaptive fitness center!

Impact 100 is a charitable women’s giving circle that awards high impact grants to Indianapolis nonprofits in five specialized areas: Arts & Culture, Education, Environment, Family, and Health & Wellness.  In a highly competitive selection process, one charity from each area emerges as a finalist eligible for a grand prize of $100,000.

We are honored to be selected the “Health & Wellness” finalist, and ultimately the “Changemaker of the Year” to fund the “Impact 100 Wellness Center”, which will open at NeuroHope in July 2022 and feature a full slate of strengthening equipment for “Open Gym” and “Supervised Gym” hours.

Recovery is about much more than skilled therapy.  It is just as important for people with disabilities to have programs that maintain their health and long-term quality of life.  Everyone needs to work out and stay healthy, especially people with limited mobility battling paralysis. One in four people with spinal cord injury are admitted to the hospital every year due to complications related to inactivity (skin breakdown, UTI, muscle contracture, cardiovascular health, etc.).  Our wellness program, consisting of gym access and daily group classes, can now better complement individual therapy and self-pay sessions to form a true continuum of care for people along the road to recovery.

When the need for affordable, extended therapy for people recovering from paralysis is recognized, and the passion our team has for patients is rewarded – it shows how much our program matters.

A heartfelt thanks goes to Impact 100 and the supporters who make what we do possible.

NeuroHope Wins $23,000 as Impact 100 Finalist

For the second year in a row NeuroHope is proud to be named the “Health & Wellness” finalist by Impact 100 of Greater Indianapolis! This year our team was honored with a $23,000 check from the women’s giving circle which will directly help fund the services we provide for people living paralysis!

Impact 100 is one of the most competitive grants in the state. Each year five finalists in five categories advance past hundreds of other charities to be recognized as the “Change Maker of the Year” with a $100,000 grant. This year, the grand prize was presented to the Kennedy King Memorial Initiative in the “Arts & Culture” category for their effort to create a new National Monument commemorating Robert F. Kennedy’s famous speech in Indianapolis the night Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was shot.

There are so many worthwhile charities in our community! It is an honor to be named among them by such a prestigious group that makes an impact across central Indiana each year.

Meanwhile – our fundraising continues! It’s fueled by the inspiring stories we have the privilege to witness at NeuroHope every day. If you missed our recent spotlight video that shows Alex Taylor’s progress over the last 18 months, CHECK IT OUT BELOW! He had a goal to WALK all the way to the arcade at the Incrediplex for a surprise!

We have launched a 12-MONTH goal to raise $100,000 in private fundraising (from donors like YOU) to help offset the cost of the affordable care we provide our patients. Out-of-pocket rates for physical therapy at most healthcare clinics cost $300 – $400 per hour. At NeuroHope we charge $50 to work with therapists / trainers, and rely on fundraising, grants, and corporate / community partnerships to bridge the funding gap. It is a TRUE model of care that puts patients and their families FIRST.
