Wilson Research Foundation
The Wilson Research Foundation is the fundraising arm of Methodist Rehabilitation Center.
Through the generosity of our donors, the foundation has provided over $6 million in grants for clinical (patient-focused) research studies, advanced education and technology, helping develop Methodist into a center of excellence for rehabilitation research and care. Our full-time research scientists work side by side with therapists to develop innovative therapies that help our patients recover more ability and independence. And our work has a global impact, with 251 peer-reviewed research publications to date. Please consider making a gift to support this life-giving research.
Walk & Roll for Research: On April 11, 2015 the foundation held its 6th annual benefit as we walked and rolled to celebrate our patients' restored ability and mobiliy, while raising over $50,000 for our research program. Click here to visit the Walk & Roll website.
100 Miles of Mahem: On June 20, 2015, the Bike Crossing of Ridgeland held its 3rd annual "100 Miles of Mahem Century Ride to benefit for the Wilson Foundation. In what's become one of the most talked about and fun cycling events in Mississippi, 250 riders, along with an army of MRC employee-volunteers, braved the heat on a scorching June Saturday to raise funds to restore ability and hope.
