Frazier Rehab Institute/Jewish Hospital & St. Mary’s Foundation to receive funding for spinal cord rehab housing - Archived


In 2010, Jason Dierking competed in a half-Ironman together with his friend, Tom Morris. Just two years later, Tom was injured in a mountain biking accident, leaving him paralyzed from the waist down. Shortly thereafter, Tom came to Frazier Rehab Institute, continuing in the Outpatient Spinal Cord Medicine Program for many months.  But Tom lives in Bloomington, Ind.  Nearly two hours away. 


Jason Dierking created the Frazier Rehab Ironman Housing Fund to help offset the cost of local housing for out-of-town individuals in the Spinal Cord Medicine Outpatient Program at Frazier Rehab.


Jason made it his personal mission to raise $100,000 for the cause, and on November 12, will present a check to the Jewish Hospital & St. Mary’s Foundation for the cause.
