In May of 2013, Mark was injured in a car accident while taking his 5 year old son home from school. Doctors gave him a 2 percent chance to ever move anything below his neck. However just 10 days after the accident, Mark quickly began intense rehabilitation at Kessler, then Shepherd Center, which helped him get stronger, healthier, more independent and come closer to his goals. Just under 1yr Mark was able to make unassisted steps while training at the Hospital for Special Care and #JEKL. As a result of his experience, his wife Kasia Fadrowski DeFilippo and Michael Turgeon developed the DeFilippo Fund, a foundation to help give others with SCI the same chance at recovery. We are dedicated to raising funds to provide financial assistance for SCI victims, expand rehabilitation centers and support research relating to SCI rehabilitation. Without working, life can change in an instance and it can happen to anyone! The DeFilippo Family, has been moved by all the support they have received during early stages of Marks recovery- and now they are all about paying it forward!!!
Please consider joining me to honor this very special family. I will be looking for raffle prizes and table sponsors. A table of 10 will be $900 and you will receive signage at your table for your company or family. Great night out with your significant other to support a great cause! Thank you for your support!
