BENEFITING: EMPOWER SPINAL CORD INJURY INCORPORATED
EVENT DATE: May 15, 2016
Hi friends! I'm challenging myself to run another half marathon to raise money for Empower Spinal Cord Injury, Inc., a non-profit organization that is hosting its 5th summer program in 2016! Here's to half a decade of changing lives!
For those of you who haven't heard me talk about Empower SCI... It is a 2 week program designed to give individuals living with spinal cord injury a second chance at rehabilitation, encouraging them to live more meaningful and independent lives. During the 2 week program, participants partake in adaptive sports and activities such as surfing, swimming, kayaking, wheelchair rugby, yoga, etc., as well as occupational, physical and recreational therapies. The participants also attend peer mentoring sessions and a variety of educational sessions. It is truly an Empowering and life changing experience, run entirely by volunteers. [See http://www.empowersci.org/ for more details].
Empower SCI has provided me with unforgettable experiences and irreplaceable friendships, which is why I want to give back to my Empower family. And this is where you come in. I'll put in the miles and you can help me fundraise for this amazing cause! Your donations will fund experiences that give participants the opportunity to achieve their goals, gain confidence and live healthier, happier lives.
Every little bit counts, so please consider donating to Empower SCI today. Thank you in advance for your support!
Love & cheers(!),
