I have been spinal cord injured for 15 years and dealt with many nonprofit organizations. Push Rim Foundation has been one of the few that I trust and know they are advocating and looking out for the greater good of those who are disabled. Ray and Carlos have been a pleasure to work with and have helped me with donations, networking and bringing out awareness in my community. Keep up the great work Push Rim Foundation!

As a manager of a nonprofit that specializes in programs for spinal-cord injury, brain injury, and stroke survivors, I often work with the Pushrim Foundation when supporters wish to donate powerchairs, wheelchairs, beds, and other such equipment for the disabled as we don't accept/can't process such physical items. Pushrim is always quick to respond to the donors and always helps make the process of getting the equipment to a Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center patient as easy as possible.

Pushrim, with their various services and vast expertise are an invaluable asset to those in the disabled community.

The Rancho Los Amigos Foundation is proud to partner with the Pushrim Foundation for our wheelchair distribution program. Through their expertise and networks, hundreds of new or gently used wheelchairs are distributed yearly throughout Los Angeles County to persons with disabilities who struggle with mobility issues.

The dedication to disabled persons and their families and friends are phenomenal!! The resources, the wheelchairs, and the supplies given to the ones in need, provide smiles for both the givers and receivers.

Hello my name is Michael, I'm a c6-7 quad, I've been injured now for 8yrs. In the beginning it was very hard with having no one to talk to or any outlets to turn for advice. When a friend of mine who is also a quad talked with me and mentioned pushrim as an outlet to chat with others who where like me. Being able to discuss certain topics and everyday struggles was amazing, the group got me through tough times. Anyone who is new with SCI should check out pushrim ...

After I got injury is was hard. I didn't have any friends that were living with SCI, at times I felt like I had nobody I could talk to that would really understand what I was going through. I felt alone, a lot of times I really didn't feel like a normal human being anymore.

Through pushrim's social networking I found lots of inspiration, I was meeting people who were like me online from different cities, states. I finally had other people I could talk to. By talking to these people, getting their advice, and hearing their stories and getting to know them I was not only inspired, but I started to gain more confidence in myself. I've meet so many life long friends thru Pushrim.

Not only has the social networking site helped me, I also get so much inspiration and I get educated on many subjects through there Youtube channel. The founders of pushrim truly care and really want to help and support those in the community. A Great non profit organization, and amazing founders!!!

Good Day I’m a L1 Fracture burst incomplete Para. I have put it ALL on the line for over 20 year riding Mountain Bikes and Snowboards. July 3 2014 I ran that luck out. As my journey of a life of rehab began, I was able to make a rad introduction. I met with Ray Pizarro and Richard Bell, of PushRim.com. These 2 open doors for me and showed me the ropes. But better than just that I was able to make a difference with my support group. A lesson I have learned, when I think about myself, I dwell on my injury. Realizing this I find myself in a much better place serving the needs the Lords children. Here's s to Pushrim.com, Life after injury.
