A huge thank you to all of our corporate and foundation supporters. The following donated to Paradox Sports in 2016.

Craig H Neilsen Foundation


In 2015 we received a $25,000 grant from the Craig H Neilsen Foundation to further our efforts in improving the lives of people living with spinal cord injuries. In fact their mission is quite similar to ours: Craig H Neilsen Foundation is dedicated to research and programs to improve the quality of life for people living with spinal cord injury.

Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation


The Reeve Foundation is dedicated to curing spinal cord injury by funding innovative research, and improving the quality of life for people living with paralysis through grants, information and advocacy.


The North Face®


In 2015 we were the proud recipients of the $20,000 North Face Explorer Grant to focus on educating youth in the outdoors. The North Face® brand has grown from a single storefront to a respected global brand that generates over a billion dollars in annual sales in just over 40 years. Yet the fundamental mission remains unchanged: building the best gear for the outdoors, supporting the preservation of wild places, and inspiring a global movement of outdoor exploration.

Lucky's Market

Lucky’s Market is a natural food store unlike any other. Started by two chefs from Boulder, Colorado in 2003, who believed natural and organic food shouldn’t be a luxury. The supermarket chain has become a beloved institution throughout the South and the Midwest, where it has 17 locations across 11 states, another seven slated to open this year and plans for many more to come. And the Lucky’s Community Project is an ongoing endeavor to create lasting change in the communities they serve. Paradox Sports was chosen as a “Bags for Change” recipient for Jan – May 2017 at the South Boulder location – bring your resusable bag and pass along your bag credit to Paradox!

Outdoor Research

At Outdoor Research, we think that life gets better the minute we step out the door on a new adventure, no matter how big or small. We learn about ourselves, each other and the environment every time we get out. We come home a little wiser and stronger. We see the world more clearly, and that compels us to treat it better. More than anything, we’re convinced that if we inspire more people to get outside, the world will be a better place.
