The Heart of Our Program: Volunteers

On behalf of the Bridging Bionics Team, we thank you for your commitment and time dedicated to volunteer for our program.

Our charitable non-profit organization is based in the Roaring Fork Valley of Colorado and offers advanced technologies that assist neurologically impaired individuals. Our goal is to help our athletes regain their mobility to move and walk again. Volunteers are an essential part of fulfilling this mission.

Here are a few ways you could help:

Program Assistants: Volunteers for our program are specially trained to assist our physical therapists and personal trainers to work with our clients. All program assistants are trained to assist with our advanced technologies including the Galileo whole body vibration systems and a range of bionic exoskeleton suits.

Special Event Volunteers: Bridging Bionics hosts several special events throughout a given year. As we are a charitable organization, we depend on our dedicated volunteers to make all of our events successful. Responsibilities include but are not limited to: event set-up, parking attendants, wait staff, registration crew, live auction spotters, break-down and clean-up crew.
