Sacramento Spinal Foundation is dedicated to enhancing the life of individuals with spinal cord injuries and their families in Sacramento & Yolo County. Our goal is to raise awareness of this disability, provide resources and financial assistance to SCI individuals for home safety improvements, smarthome technologies, personal care, and intensive physical & occupational therapy rehabilitation.
We were founded by Sonny Ali (T-5) in the early summer of 2015. He was injured on Dec 27, 2014. While in acute rehab in a local Sacramento hospital, he noticed how little support or information was available to SCI individuals in the Sacramento region. He vowed to make a positive difference by maintaining a positive outlook, listening to the concerns of others, sharing community resources, and providing fundraising opportunities to the SCI community. Prior to his injury, Sonny Ali was given the Community Values award by Mayor Christopher Cabaldon for his commitment to the City of West Sacramento, for creating an online community dedicated to improving neighborhoods, parks, and open spaces for the residents and businesses within the city. Sonny has always had a passion for mentoring, coaching (sports), and leveraging innovative technologies to improve lives, and has continued to do so after his injury.
