How We Started
Pushrim started when Ray and Richard met at the Abilities Expo many years ago. Sharing a similar spinal cord injury, and began exchanging ideas. On a subsequent gathering at the Abilities Expo, they came up with an idea to create a forum where they could share their knowledge making it accessible to friends, family members and anyone with a spinal related injury.
The steps to regaining our independence is exemplified in the photos, videos and techniques shared by our members on Pushrim. Our website continues to grow daily, as well as our media library, to reaching as many of our peers as possible and share what we have encountered in our daily lives.
Pushrim continues growing daily through media and support groups. Pushrim reaches thousands of peers sharing with them resources, camaraderie, and the assurance that there is life after injury.
