From March 10, 2019 to May 15, 2019, Janne Kouri, Founder of NextStep, rode his power wheelchair from Manhattan Beach, CA to Washington, D.C. to raise awareness and funds to support the 6 million individuals and wounded service members living with paralysis in the U.S.
Janne was joined by other participants who rode bikes alongside him across the country. This dedicated team inspired those at the rehabilitation centers, universities, and the communities they visited. They provided quality-of-life grants, donated medical equipment, and hosted charity events.
The adventure tested the team’s spirit from beginning to end. The LA to DC journey was a true test of endurance, strength and camaraderie but, the team had a lot of fun along the way. The team experienced this amazing country from such a unique perspective and they met so many amazing people along the way. It was the adventure of a lifetime!
NextStep’s LA to DC Ride for Paralysis was honored to have an award winning documentary film crew, directed by Nic Good, capturing the trials and triumphs of Janne’s journey across America.
