A Night to BEL13VE

Although it's been two weeks since our annual fundraiser -  "A Night to BEL13VE" - we're still in awe of the fabulous turnout and generosity of our BEL13VERS. And oh what a night it was! 

We're forever grateful to the Minnesota Wild and Minnesota Hockey for their continued support of our foundation and for co-hosting the evening. Like last year, the event format was a pre-game party, silent auction, dinner, brief program and live auction at the River Centre, followed by the MN Wild game. Oh, and by the way, we played Tampa Bay and we scored a "W."  Yesss! 

We also extend our heartfelt thanks to Jeremy Roenick, David Wells, Jordan Leopold and Tom Hauser for their support. You guys are the best. Truly. 

And cheers to Kym and her fabulous planning committee and to all of the volunteers who helped to make this event such a huge success. Can't thank you enough. 

The night was certainly a Night to BEL13VE and a win-win for all. We announced that we're on a mission to raise funds and awareness for spinal cord injury recovery (not a new mission) and for the Mayo Clinic (new recovery partner). Yes…right here, in the State of Hockey, the world-renowned Mayo Clinic is now on board to advance spinal cord injury research. We couldn't be more excited!!!

The BEL13VE in Miracles Foundation has pledged to raise $300,000 to fully fund the first two Mayo Clinic recipients of the ground-breaking epidural stimulation project. To date, this is the most promising method of recovery for people living with paralysis due to a spinal cord injury. It's a game-changer. So far, everyone who has undergone this treatment has regained functions that were lost when they suffered paralyzing injuries….bowel, bladder, sexual function and body temperature regulation. They've even been able to stand and take steps. This is now. This is real. This endorses our belief that paralysis no longer permanent. 

And let's get the elephant out of the room...this study does not include Jack. Just want to make that clear. But our goal is to advance this therapy from the lab to the clinic so that Jack and everyone like Jack who's waiting to get out of his or her chair can have access to this ground breaking, life-changing therapy.

So, back to the event…we truly exceeded our expectations for the night. Still waiting for the final tally, but we know the funds raised were larger than we had anticipated. Awesome! Let's make this happen…sooner rather than later. #Don'tWantToWait. 

Here's the video we presented at A Night to BEL13VE: https://youtu.be/ydiWc8ohiBs
Huge, huge thanks to Tremendous Entertainment and MF (Marky Mark) for doing such an awesome job on capturing our story, message and mission. 

If you want to help move the epidural stimulation treatment from the lab to the clinic, you can make a tax deductible donation by texting SCORE to 91999. 

We thank you for your continued support and prayers. Good things are happening. We just know it.

And we BEL13VE it.

Jack should definitely be part of the study. After all the study has come about because of Jack's injury and work the Foundation has done. He deserves to be first.

Why doesn't the study include Jack? A success at Mayo with Jack would get the most attention and raise many more $ for the cause. The Bel13ve philanthropy work should be directly benefitting Jack now too.

Is there any evidence that epidural stimulation works in patients works in patients with complete injuries? And I don't just mean neuro-motor complete, I mean completely severed spinal cords.
