Where did the idea of the Warrior Momz Walk Across America come from? How was it conceived?
What exactly is a Warrior Mom and what do “momz
When our children suffered a spinal cord injury, we wanted to do something, anything, to make it better, to make a difference. While this initiative involves family members and friends from every corner of the world, we know that Moms really run the show and get the job done. Love motivation, it’s a powerful mom thing! Warrior means biggest advocate, champion, and supporter. They will
do their very best to move heaven and earth for their kids. And the “z” on momz is Aussie.

What are the goals or desired outcomes of the Warrior Momz Walk Across America?

Who will be walking and how far? What is the route?
Why is Kay walking across the country? Isn’t there an easier way to raise money? Why isn’t she walking across Australia? (I mean besides the crocodiles…)
What exactly is activity-based therapy?
We know from clinical trials and years of anecdotal discoveries that activity-based therapy
brings about recovery in these patients, as well as improvements in muscle mass, bone density and cardiovascular health. Examples of activity-based therapies are treadmill therapy, FES (functional
electronic stimulation) therapy.
How many people in the US have a spinal cord injury? What doesn’t their insurance pay for this therapy?
How does someone with a spinal cord injury apply for a therapy scholarship?
Applicants will be vetted by local partnering non-profit
organizations tied to the cities and towns along the route where therapy
will take place. Applications will be collected by the QUAD Foundation and then forwarded to the closest organization for final selection. Unfortunately, only clients close to these centers will be able to participate. For the rest of our paralyzed community, we will be lobbying our lawmakers in Washington DC at the end of the Walk to make these therapies available and affordable to everyone living with a spinal cord injury.
