2021 PUSH Gala
Please note that the June 26th date is not yet confirmed. The safety of our Craig family is our utmost priority. We are actively monitoring public health recommendations surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. If necessary, we will adjust the event date or transition the 2021 PUSH Gala to a virtual event. While COVID-19 has required us to be flexible, our patients and programs still rely on the generosity of our community. We encourage sponsors and attendees to maintain their support regardless of the event format.
Craig's biggest fundraiser of the year, the annual PUSH Gala, raises money to support Craig's programs and research. The 2020 PUSH raised a record-breaking $2 million!
Proceeds from the PUSH dinner fund Craig's unique culture of care programs like Therapeutic Recreation, Adaptive Technology, Music Therapy, Community Reintegration and education programs – which are not covered by insurance. PUSH funds also support research, including ongoing studies and clinical trials aimed at improving outcomes, reducing long-term complications and enhancing quality of life for those affected by spinal cord and traumatic brain injury.
The PUSH paddle auction raises funds for the Craig Foundation's Patient Assistance Fund, which helps patients with minimal income or inadequate insurance travel to and from Craig, purchase equipment like wheelchairs and shower chairs, remodel homes for accessibility, train caregivers, pay mortgages and rent, and meet other urgent needs.
Additional information about PUSH 2021 will be posted as it becomes available.
Craig patients rely on the generosity of PUSH sponsors and supporters. To learn more about how you can support this event, contact Becky Plunkett, director of Philanthropy & Corporate Partnerships, at email@example.com or 303-789-8166.
