CEO Takes SMA Fight to a New Height

Dimensional Innovations CEO, Jim Baker, has created the Climb 4 SMA to raise awareness and funds for Spinal Muscular Atrophy research. Jim will climb Mount Aconcagua in Argentina in January with the goal of raising $50,000 leading up to his climb. The climb was created in honor of Jadon Burks, the son of a Tony Burks, an employee of Dimensional Innovations. Jadon was diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy at six weeks old. SMA is the number one genetic killer of children under two years old. Jim was so inspired by the Burks' courage and passion to fight this disease that he wanted to help. He chose to combine his passion for mountain climbing with his desire to help Jadon and other children with SMA. Below is a link to a news story feature on Jadon and the climb.
