Numotion Foundation announces COVID-19 relief contributions totaling $100,000 to aid those living with mobility-related disabilities facing uncertainty or challenges as the result of the current pandemic.

Notably, it is providing COVID-19 specific contributions in the amount of $50,000 each to the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation and the Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society, it notes in a media release.

The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation will use the contribution primarily to support its mission to enhance the health and quality of life of those living with paralysis and continue vital research on new treatments for spinal cord injury.

“With this contribution, we can expand our life-saving resources and programs critical to the health and well-being of our community,” says Peter Wilderotter, President and CEO of the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation, in the release.

“Collaboration remains central to our work, and we are grateful for the Numotion Foundation’s support, which helps ensure that those living with paralysis, their families and caregivers are not overlooked during this pandemic. This gift helps us continue to provide the care needed today and the cures needed tomorrow.”

The MS Society, committed to serving those with MS nationwide and whose vision is a “World free of MS,” intends to utilize the contribution to support its MS Navigator program.

“The generosity of the Numotion Foundation helps ensure the National MS Society can continue providing breakthroughs for the MS community during this time of crisis and beyond,” says Liz Adams, Executive Vice President of Individual Giving and Corporate Engagement for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. “They are stepping up in a big way for people affected by MS, and we are grateful for their leadership and compassion.” 

“During these challenging times, the Numotion Foundation is pleased to support COVID-19 relief efforts in disability communities across the country,” says Mike Swinford, Numotion Foundation President and CEO of Numotion, the release continues.

“We want to ensure that nonprofits, and the communities they serve, are able to meet needs as they arise throughout this crisis and thrive in the future. We are happy to partner with the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation and the MS Society, and others, to help meet these goals in both the short and long-term.”
