On Monday, November 11, local nonprofits Bridging Bionics Foundation and Pathfinders announced a new collaboration called "Redefining Transitions: Building Resiliency." This program partners professional counseling with advanced physical therapy for individuals with spinal cord injuries or neurological mobility impairments as well as their caregivers. Representing Bridging Bionics, Jamie Ramge and Nate White, joined by Laura Irmen for Pathfinders, gave details on Express Yourself.

Raleigh Burleigh was raised in the historic floodplanes of Satank. The Carbondale Rotary Club sponsored him as a youth ambassador to Chile the year before his graduation from Roaring Fork High School. He studied International Affairs and Journalism at the University of Colorado, Boulder then applied those studies traveling throughout South America the following year. Returning to Carbondale thereafter, Raleigh acquired an internship with KDNK News which led to the opportunity to serve as News Director from 2017 to 2019. After another trip to South America in early 2019, Raleigh Burleigh drew deeper into the confluence as Program Director at KDNK. Now Raleigh is happy to serve on the KDNK Board of Directors. Raleigh is now the Editor of Carbondale's weekly newspaper the Sopris Sun.
