Toyota Supports Stay in Step Program to Help Paralyzed Veterans

Here at Krause Toyota, we’re proud to work for a brand that takes community service and social activism very seriously. Most recently, Toyota lent its support to the Stay in Step program, which is an injury recovery center. Toyota joins Romy Camargo, who was injured by a sniper bullet on his third tour of duty in Afghanistan, in the Stay in Step effort. Camargo and his wife opened the center to help people with spinal-cord injuries make fuller recoveries.

Toyota donated $300,000 towards the facility, helping it reach its $750,000 fundraising goal. “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,” said Simon Nagata, executive vice president of Toyota Motor North America. “Toyota is proud to support Stay In Step and the tremendous work of Romy and Gaby.”

Stay in Step will make use of special strength and conditioning workouts, add a “never quit attitude” approach, and push the boundaries of what people think possible in the world of spinal-cord injury recovery. Come see us here at Krause Toyota to learn more about this new Toyota-sponsored facility.
