I am honored and excited to be a part of the Journey Forward marathon team. This organization is dedicated to helping people recover from spinal cord and brain injury. My older brother, Pat, has been very fortunate to participate in physical therapy at Journey Forward. The results of the treatment are amazing and my family is grateful for the tremendous efforts of those working with Pat on a weekly basis to improve his strength and mobility. The dedication of the staff to Pat's recovery is truly inspiring. With continued support, Journey Forward will be able to reach more people in need and make a positive impact on their lives through intense exercise programs that are essential for recovery.
Please support this organization with a donation and I can promise I will think of you as I train and participate in the 2015 running of the Boston Marathon.
Journey Forward is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to bettering the lives of those who have suffered a Spinal Cord Injury through an intense exercise program. Exercise is important to everyone and even more so to those who have suffered a Spinal Cord Injury. An average able bodied person can walk around throughout the day; and that simple task of walking puts needed stress on the body to insure proper bone density, muscle growth, and many other bodily functions. When an individual suffers a spinal cord injury and are required to sit in a wheelchair all day, they are no longer able to obtain the benefits that come from the average activities of daily living. Journey Forward is an exercise based program designed to assist those with Spinal Cord Injuries so they too can achieve some of these most basic lifelong functions and benefits.
Thank you so much for your support!
