Amanda's story:  On 1/11/18 I was in a very bad snowboarding accident. I was hitting a jump and took a bad landing. I broke a rib, shattered parts of my spine, and was rushed to emergency surgery at Lehigh Valley hospital. I have 65 staples all the way down my spine and a metal rod and bolts in my back now. I have spinal cord damage at location T-12, which means at this point in time I am paralyzed from belly button down. The doctor told me there’s one in a million chance that I am ever going to have feeling in my legs again. I don’t believe that. I know in my heart I will be back to normal. 

After spending 9 days in the hospital, I was transferred to Kessler Rehabilitation Center, the #1 center for spinal cord injuries.  I’ll be living here for a short while to help me recover. I love it here so far and I love therapy!!  I’m getting better every day. It’s truly a miracle. I have little pain right now and I was off of pain killers in only 8 days! The doctors are amazed with me!! I’m so determined to get better.

Amanda is currently rehabbing with NAC expert trainer, Andrew Haberman.  She is making amazing progress, but we need your help to support her journey.  By donating here you can help.

At the NAC we are hosting a fundraiser for Amanda through our NAC Have a Heart Foundation and hope that you will give to support her journey to recovery.


NAC Have a Heart Foundation Mission Statement

The mission is to identify and raise awareness and funds for causes in our community which affect the quality of life of the members of our community and the world at large through both advocacy and fundraising.

About the Foundation

The NAC Have a Heart Foundation was founded by Jim Worthington, owner of the Newtown Athletic Club (NAC).  His vision was to create a charitable arm of the NAC that would serve the community both locally and nationally. After giving significant contributions to the community (valuing over $1 million dollars annually) for over 20 years, he felt that he wanted to gather all of these altruistic activities under one organization and the Have a Heart Foundation was born.

NAC Have a Heart Foundation and Matt's Mission for ALS

While the foundation supports many causes, one of its main focuses is raising funds for ALS research (funds going directly to ALS TDI) to find a cure for this horrific disease and supports advocacy for causes that affect the terminally ill.  To date, almost $2 million has been raised for Augie’s Quest through Matt’s Mission.  Many thanks for the support of our members, the community, our business partners and to NAC Have a Heart founder Jim Worthington for his personal contributions.
