Burg Simpson and shareholders Peter Burg and Jake Burg are proud sponsors of Craig Hospital and their annual PUSH GALA.  The gala was a virtual event this year, but thanks to the generosity of all this year’s sponsors, the event raised over $3.3 million!

The Craig Hospital staff and volunteers in the photo above also had a great time delivering this year’s celebration boxes full of goodies from the sponsors to patients. The patients were grateful for the boxes and happy to learn about the annual PUSH event. Many patients also tuned in to the virtual event and some even donated and purchased auction items, so the celebration boxes had an even greater impact than anticipated!

The proceeds from the 2021 virtual PUSH Gala will be used to fund Craig’s unique culture of care programs like Therapeutic Recreation, Adaptive Technology, Music TherapyCommunity Reintegration, and education programs – which are not generally covered by insurance. PUSH funds also support research, including ongoing studies and clinical trials aimed at improving outcomes, reducing long-term complications, and enhancing the quality of life for those affected by spinal cord and traumatic brain injury.

Here is a link to the recorded broadcast. Burg Simpson’s special sponsorship is featured around minute 15:40.
