The Foundation offers virtual and hybrid events to connect

PR Newswire

SHORT HILLS, N.J., Aug. 7, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation presents a list of events to wrap up the Summer on a high note. Event proceeds will further the mission of curing spinal cord injuries and advancing innovative research and improving the quality of life for individuals and families impacted by paralysis.

"When the pandemic started, the Foundation had to act quickly and think of new ways to hold our events during these times. We asked how we could make events different, exciting, engaging, and safe for our community to come together. The answer was virtual/hybrid events from the safety of our homes or while practicing strict social distancing guidelines," says Aimee Hunnewell, Chief Development Officer, Reeve Foundation. "We must continue to fundraise and push our mission forward, but our community's health and well-being will always come first."
