The Buoniconti Fund to Cure Paralysis and The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis are 501(c)3 organizations committed to finding a cure for paralysis resulting from spinal cord injury and to seeing millions worldwide walk again.
It all started with the formation of the Miami Project. The Miami Project was co-founded in 1985 by internationally recognized spinal cord injury (SCI) expert, Barth A. Green, M.D. and three families who had experienced SCI firsthand. The Buoniconti family was one of them.
After the injury of their son, Marc, NFL Hall of Fame linebacker Nick Buoniconti and his family vowed that progress in research would not be slowed because of a lack of funds. Their fundraising efforts brought an unprecedented level of public awareness of the need for SCI research with the goal of curing paralysis. So, the Buoniconti Family teamed up with the Miami Project.
Out of this vision, both The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis and the Buoniconti Fund were born.
