Toyota Supports Spinal Cord Injury Recovery Center

August 16th, 2015 by

For Romy Camargo, founder of the Stay In Step non-profit recovery center for spinal-cord injury (SCI) patients, the work he does is personal. Camargo himself suffered spinal-cord injury during his third deployment in Afghanistan when a sniper shot him.  He spent a year and a half getting inpatient treatment before he was finally able to wheel himself out of the hospital. Ever since then, Camargo
and his wife, Gaby, have been working to improve recovery and make life easier for other SCI patients. 

As the Camargos were raising money to open the Stay In Step facility in Tampa, Florida, Toyota got wind of the project. As the fundraising period drew to an end, Toyota stepped in to help the Camargos achieve their dream, donating $300,000 to ensure the $750,000 goal was met and the facility could open as planned. And when Stay In Step held its grand opening this June, Toyota donated a 2015 Toyota Sienna to the facility – wheelchair accessible, of course. Simon Nagata, Toyota Motor North America Executive President and Chief Administrative Officer, explained that “Supporting Stay In Step is aligned with Toyota’s corporate vision to lead the way to the future of mobility and enrich lives around the world with the safest and most responsible ways of moving people.”
