Each year, the Gillian Reny Stepping Strong Center for Trauma Innovation supports a groundbreaking project in innovative trauma treatment and recovery through its Stepping Strong Innovator Awards. The Stepping Strong Center was established by the Reny family following the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings, which left Gillian Reny, a student and aspiring dancer, with severe injuries to both of her legs. The Center aims to turn tragedy into hope for the tens of thousands of civilians and military personnel worldwide who have suffered from the devastation of traumatic injuries and events.
