Ryan Shazier Fund for Spinal Rehabilitation Family and Caregivers Support Program

When it was time for us to select the first official beneficiary of The Edgar Snyder& Associates Foundation, The Shazier Fund was a no brainer. They’re dedicated to helping those who have sustained life-changing injuries, something we’ve been doing for more than 40 years.

They also help those who often get little to no support – caregivers. That’s why we jumped at the chance to sponsor their Family and Caregivers Support Program.

Our firm has always been a fan of Ryan Shazier the football player, but since we’ve started working closely with The Ryan Shazier Fund for Spinal Rehabilitation, we’ve become even bigger fans of the work he does in the community.

What is this Program All About?

The Ryan Shazier Fund for Spinal Rehabilitation Family and Caregivers Support Program is designed to provide, “…tangible, concrete support to caregivers and families of individuals with spinal cord injuries in Western Pennsylvania” by connecting families and caregivers with mental health and educational resources. They also create networking and emotional support opportunities.

Programs We've Helped Ryan Sponsor

Family and Caregivers Working Group

Ryan works with this group of spinal cord injury (SCI) survivors, caregivers, family members and medical professionals to advise the Fund on its Family and Caregiver programming.

Woodlands Family Retreats

TheRyan Shazier Fund and the Woodlands Foundation team up to give people with an SCI and their families a free and relaxing weekend away at the Woodlands campus in Wexford.

SCI Street Fair

Ryan hosts the SCI Street Fair to raise awareness of SCI, the work of the Ryan Shazier Fund, and create an atmosphere for SCI families to gather and have fun.

Grub on the Gridiron

Last season, we worked with Ryan to raise a whopping $61,275 in our Grub on theGridiron promotion with our partners, the Pittsburgh Steelers. All proceeds were donated to The Ryan Shazier Fund for Spinal Rehabilitation and The Heyward House. Edgar Snyder & Associates matched any money raised up to $50,000.Plus, we gave away a dinner for four with Heyward and Shazier at AcrisureS tadium, a tour of the stadium, and a custom Steelers jersey for each guest.

I want to be there for people who are going through similar struggles. No matter who you are or what you’re going through, we’re all in life together. We need to take care of each other.
