A Step Toward Hope began in 2005 as an annual gala to raise money for the paralysis cause. The organization thrived and became an official
501-C3 charity in 2007.
Now, most of A Step Toward Hope’s events center around individuals who have recently been paralyzed, in order to help them fund specific needs like handicapped accessible vans or construction to their home.
A Step Toward Hope aims to help improve the quality of life for people living with paralysis. The organization is 100% volunteer-based, with no salaries to pay. Most events are funded and sponsored by Miles Technologies, the company whose employees founded A Step Toward Hope. This way, 100% of the money raised at events can go directly to helping people and making their lives better.
