Approximately 700,000 Americans have disabilities related to the spinal cord including spinal cord injuries, multiple sclerosis, polio, spina bifida, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Lou Gehrig’s disease).
The road back to a full and productive life has been charted and paved by United Spinal Association. We have been committed to enhancing the lives of individuals with spinal cord disabilities through our various outreach activities, services and programs. United Spinal Association’s membership is free and open to all these individuals, regardless of their ages.
The core belief of the membership and the staff of United Spinal have remained unchanged for over 60 years––that, despite SCI/D, a full, pro-active, and rewarding life is not only possible, it is within the reach of anyone with the strength to believe it and the courage to make it happen.
United Spinal believes in supporting our members with community initiatives, advocacy programs, events and activities, motorsports programs, and our online newsletter, Action Online.

Motorsports: Living Life in Motion Mission
The mission of United Spinal Association’s Motorsports program is to encourage people with disabilities, including individuals who use adaptive automotive equipment, to participate in competitive motorsports. It is also to cultivate partnerships within the motorsports industry in support of the program, thus raising awareness about spinal cord injuries and disorders.
United Spinal has created a committee, enlisting the help of a diverse group of motorsports industry leaders and professionals who have partnered with us and believe in our mission of enabling people with spinal cord injuries and disorders to fulfill their potential as active members of their communities. The committee is responsible for coordinating events, identifying fundraising and networking opportunities, campaigning on behalf of United Spinal and its members, and developing specific program-oriented goals.
