Our Founder’s Story
Sacramento Spinal Foundation were founded by Sonny Ali August 2015. While in acute rehabilitation , he noticed how little support or information was available to individuals with spinal cord injury 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 scholarships opportunities to the SCI community in the Sacramento and Yolo counties.
Prior to his injury, Sonny Ali had been an active member in his community and created an online community dedicated to improving neighborhoods, parks, and open spaces for the residents and businesses. Sonny has always had a passion for mentoring, coaching soccer and leveraging innovative technologies to improve lives, and continued to do so after his injury.
Sacramento Spinal Foundation is 100% volunteer based! Everything we do to serve the spinal cord injury community is made possible by our volunteers and donors. If you’d like to volunteer, please contact us!
On behalf of everyone behind our mission at Sacramento Spinal Foundation, I’d like to celebrate our local SCI community and its supporters. Thank you for being a part of our success!
