Get Involved

Have you achieved an improved quality of life through treatment for neck or back pain (surgical or non-surgical)? If yes, join our virtual challenge and encourage your family, friends, and medical team to register, too!

We know the journey to spinal health is not one that can be made alone and encourage Spinal Champions® to share their story, giving hope to others battling similar challenges. Share your story here!

Grab your friends, medical team, coworkers, neighbors, teammates, or classmates for some friendly competition and raise funds for a great cause! Register today.

Through our Youth Ambassador Program, Students Taking Action for Research, youth will educate others about factors that compromise spinal health, promote STEM activities, and develop basic fundraising opportunities. If a child (less than 18 years old) registers, email info@spinehealth.org to earn their S.T.A.R. certificate!

The Foundation’s sponsorship program allows us to form strategic partnerships with foundations, corporations, organizations, and individuals that share our vision of eliminating neck and back suffering. We rely on your gifts and contributions to provide a range of educational resources including The Spine Health Journal, Spine-Talks®, and community events, as well as to conduct national research studies to drive innovation and to prove what works.

If you are interested in sponsorship opportunities, please contact Sabrina M. Woodlief, Community Engagement, Sr. Manager, swoodlief@spinehealth.org.
