About the Organizer

Freedom to Walk Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, assists with the funding for the purchase of WalkAides for children and adults diagnosed with Foot Drop due to Multiple Sclerosis, Cerebral Palsy, Stroke, Spinal Cord Injury or Traumatic Brain Injury. The WalkAide is FDA approved, but most insurance companies are denying coverage for the device. With an out of pocket cost of $5,000 per unit, the cost is prohibitive for many who see the WalkAide as an invaluable opportunity to improve their quality of life.
