INTIMATERIDER IS AN OFFICIAL PVA SUPPORTER
A portion of every IntimateRider sale from October 1st to December 31st 2010 will be donated to the Paralyzed Veterans of America. The PVA is a very important support group for young men and women who suffer a spinal cord injury while in the line of duty.
Everyday activity is forever changed after a spinal cord injury and both the Intimaterider and PVA offer ideas and solutions that will make adapting to this lifestyle change a bit easier. Paralyzed Veterans of America works to maximize the quality of life for its members and all people with SCI/D as a leading advocate for health care, SCI/D research and education, veterans’ benefits and rights, accessibility and the removal of architectural barriers, sports programs, and disability rights. They are the only Congressionally chartered veterans organization dedicated solely to serving the needs of SCI/SCD veterans.
The Paralyzed Veterans of America, a congressionally chartered veterans service organization founded in 1946, has developed a unique expertise on a wide variety of issues involving the special needs of our members—veterans of the armed forces who have experienced spinal cord injury or dysfunction. Paralyzed Veterans will use that expertise to be the leading advocate for:
- Quality health care for our members,
- Research and education addressing spinal cord injury and dysfunction,
- Benefits available as a result of our members’ military service,
- Civil rights and opportunities which maximize the independence of our members.
