Jennifer is Owner/Director of Camp Run-a-Muk, a summer day camp and after school program for school-aged children. Camp Run-a-Muk has been in operation for 22 years and is based in Carbondale, Colorado. Jennifer is affectionately known as Miss Honey to her campers. Jennifer was interested in exoskeleton technology when EksoTM was formerly known as the prototype, eLEGS from Berkeley Bionics. Inspired by Amanda’s pursuit to fundraise and acquire her own exoskeleton in 2013, Jennifer and the children from Camp Run-a-Muk dreamed up ‘Imagine XO’ and became active supporters in helping Amanda realize her vision. Jennifer stirred the power of philanthropy in her campers as they watched Amanda walk in her own Ekso just months later. While being fascinated by the technology, she is incredibly moved by the life-changing human components. “Observing a caregiver or family member watch their loved ones walk again never gets old.” She believes that her contribution to Bridging Bionics’ Board is where her heart is…with children, and specifically her God-daughter Parker, who is a teenager with Cerebral Palsy and is in the Able Bionics USA program. She hopes to continue to inspire her campers about philanthropy through active fundraising and educational programs for Bridging Bionics Foundation.
