As an active advocate for the need for increased consumer focus and participation in the neurotrauma research field since 1992, Barry recently retired from the personal injury practice to focus solely on the Canadian Spinal Research Organization. The not-for-profit is dedicated to raising funds for spinal cure research and has raised nearly 20 million dollars since its inception in 1984. Some of the fundraising initiatives include Shoot for a Cure, Donate a Photo and the Easel Program. Along with everyone involved in the CSRO, Barry hopes to one day live in a world without paralysis caused by spinal cord injury.
