Why Bionics? Our Vision for a Bolder Future.

Whether due to disease, injury, or aging, mobility disabilities are all around us, impacting hundreds of millions globally. And yet, for generations the primary response has been to put our loved ones in wheelchairs, despite knowing how bad this can be for the individual’s physical and mental health.

As a nonprofit, we are taking a stand against this status quo and asking, “Is this really the best we can do?” Yes, wheelchairs may be cheap and easy, but is that what we really strive for?
Cheap and easy? Or do we aspire to do more to help others, to dream bigger, and to create a bolder future where everyone can enjoy the freedom of mobility that so many of us take for granted?

The truth is that no number of ramps and elevators will ever make the world fully wheelchair accessible. For people with lower-limb disabilities, bionics such as advanced prostheses, wearable robotics, and neurotechnology can set the body free and allow the spirit to soar. Let’s stop wishing and start doing. Let’s spark a new era of mobility tech and enable all of humanity to move on their own terms, not the terms of their disability.

Planning Your Challenge. Helpful Tips

  • Safety first! While we are thrilled to have your support, the challenge is not worth any risk to your safety or the safety of others.
  • 100,000 steps equates to approximately 50 miles. Whether you intend to do all 100,000 on your own, or divide among teammates, please plan accordingly. 
  • It’s better to walk with company! Whether you have someone along for the entire challenge, or just to meet you at various checkpoints, we encourage people to do the challenge together.
  • Plan your route wisely:
    • If possible, choose a mostly flat route
    • Avoid busy roads and highways that could be a safety hazard
    • Plan resupply locations for water, food, and bathroom breaks.
  • Start early to provide yourself plenty of time on the back end.
  • Tell others of your plans! Make sure family and friends know where you will be and when for safety purposes.
  • Ensure your phone and fitness tracker are fully charged before you start.
  • Change socks and footwear at throughout the challenge. Try to keep your feet dry and comfortable!
  • Watch the weather and plan accordingly! Reschedule for another day if needed.
  • Hydrate, and bring nutrient-dense snacks.
  • If you plan to do all 100,000 steps on your own, we LOVE your ambition and are right there with you. However, we learned the hard way that even the athletes and soldiers among us needed a few long-distance training walks to prepare.
