JANNE’S MISSION

Janne Kouri, founder of NextStep, is embarking on the journey of a lifetime, riding his power wheelchair from Los Angeles 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 will be joined by other participants who will bike, run, and roll alongside him across the country. This dedicated team will inspire those at the rehabilitation centers, universities, and the communities they visit. They will provide quality-of-life grants, donate medical equipment, and host charity events along their cross-country journey.
