We all have moments that change our lives...
I volunteered as a resident aide at the Empower SCI 2016 summer program. For those of you not familiar with Empower SCI, the summer program is a two week program designed to give people with spinal cord injuries a second chance at rehabilitation. This is rehab for life - physical therapy, occupational therapy, massage therapy, rehab couseling, and daily recreational activities and presentations. During the two weeks, participants have the chance to do things they didn't think were possible after their injury; including surfing, kayaking, yoga, wheelchair rugby, and painting - to name a few. At Empower, we all believe that every person is capable of more than they know.
Empower SCI not only changes the lives of the participants, it touches the life of every person who is involved. We are all volunteers who are dedicated to helping people live their best lives. I first was involved with Empower SCI as a physical therapy student, and since then have found my passion as a rehab professional in working in neuro rehabilitation. I hope to continue to have the opportunity to work with people with spinal cord injuries as a physical therapist and as a volunteer with Empower SCI.
This year, I am taking on a new role with Empower SCI as an Outreach Coordinator. In this role, I hope to spread the word about this amazing program and help facilitate spreading the greatness of Empower across the country. In order to reach our goal of expaning the program, we need your help! I am joining one of our founders, Jess Goodine, in her 100 miles for Empower Challenge. I will be attempting to make it to 100 miles of running, triathlons, and adventure racing by the start of the Empower 2018 program! Please consider supporting me in raising money for an organization that has changed my life and the lives of countless others - THANK YOU!
