Our 2014 Gala

On Saturday, March 22nd, the GBC celebrated its 22nd year at the RISE Above Paralysis Gala at the Hyatt Harborside Hotel. It was an exceptional evening, bringing together over 200 individuals with spinal cord injury, family members, healthcare professionals and corporate sponsors to celebrate the GBC's work over the last year.

We were honored to recognize Frank Reynolds, who has been a leader in the development on innovative therapies that may one day lead to a cure for SCI, Erik Kondo, who has paraplegia and has become a successful entrepreneur and is very active in a variety of adaptive sports, The Institute for Human Centered Design for their commitment to advancing the role of design for people of all ages and disabilities, and Sandy Stoller for volunteering for 10 years as webmaster.

The evening was a wonderful opportunity to catch up with old and new friends, and included a silent auction and dancing. We are grateful for everyone's support and partnership in making this special evening possible.

Larry Brennan, a Wakefield native, spoke to Pack 712's Bear Den about different abilities. He did a wonderful job of explaining his accident, its impact on his life and those around him, and how he has learned to do the same things everyone else does, differently. Larry's talk completed the Cub Scout's Disability Awareness Belt Loop requirements.
