THE STORY:

"RunForOthers" 2013 NYC Marathon – Running my first Marathon! Supporting NextStepFitness 

Dear Friends & Family,

I will be running the 2013 NYC Marathon and am trying to make strides for the organization NextStepFitness!  I would very much appreciate your generosity in donating anything you can to this fantastic cause. 

NextStep is a nationally recognized non-profit organization which believes that all persons living with paralysis and other physical disabilities deserve the hope and opportunity to live long, healthy, functioning lives. Yet most of these individuals are deprived of the resources they desperately need.  Either there are no options available to them or they remain unaffordable. NextStep provides an opportunity for health and recovery through affordable and progressive community fitness, health, and wellness facilities.  Among other research, education, and awareness program success, the organization has also been paramount in building the first state of the art community facility in the U.S. to offer Locomotor and activity based training in Los Angeles.  The second project is underway in New York.

So what does this mean? I had the opportunity to learn first-hand a few months ago when I met Janne Kouri, founder of NextStep.  Janne was an avid athlete until a routine swim during August 2006 resulted in C5 & C6 vertebrae fractures upon diving into a sand bar. He was instantly paralyzed from the neck down and told he had zero hope for recovery.  Today, he is not only an immensely positive individual and the founder of a national non-profit organization, but he has made great strides to moving again completely under his own power.  He has re-learned the ability to walk with a walker!  He, like so many others, was told he would never function again.  I was immediately inspired.

I am now asking for your help in donating to this admirable cause.  I am running for those who work every day to accomplish the slightest movement forward.  Any donation will make a difference in the research, education and therapy which so many people need.

Thank you for your help and for your support!

NextStep is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization, and is a member of the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation, NeuroRecovery Network (NRN) Community Fitness and Wellness (CFW) Program.
