Apart from its festive charm, your participation in the We’ve For Your Back Race for spinal health benefits:

  • Support spinal research: Registration fees directly benefit the Spinal Research Foundation’s mission to improve spinal health and patient outcomes through research, education, and patient advocacy.
  • Generate awareness for spinal health: Spinal injuries and disorders have a widespread impact on the quality of life and livelihood of those that are affected.
The Foundation’s corporate sponsorship program allows us to form strategic partnerships with foundations, corporations, organizations, and individuals that share our vision to resolve debilitating spinal pain. We rely on corporate funding to conduct national research studies and clinical trials and to provide a range of educational resources including the Journal of the Spinal Research Foundation, lectures, and community events. Through our signature We’ve Got Your Back events, we will provide you with the opportunity to fulfill your community outreach, corporate wellness, marketing, and philanthropic objectives. If you are interested in sponsorship opportunities, please contact Kari Reed, Development & Events Director,
