Support Stephen Gosnell!
Stephen was injured diving into a pool in May of 2004 and broke his C-6 vertebrae. As a result, he requires a wheelchair. Stephen has never let his injury hold him back. He recently graduated from Clemson University with honors in Spring 2011, and he is currently working towards his Masters in Counseling from Webster University. Although Stephen has accomplished many things since his accident, his greatest goal is STANDING before him!
Please join us in helping him reach this goal. We appreciate your prayers as well as financial support.
What is Project Walk?
Project Walk Atlanta Spinal Cord Injury Recovery Center exists to provide an improved quality of life to people with spinal cord injuries through intense exercise-based recovery programs, education, support and encouragement.
Project Walk is a pioneer in exercise-based recovery and has been treating SCI clients for over a decade.
What does Project Walk do?
IMPROVED LEVEL OF FUNCTION
The majority of our clients improve function below their injury level and we have the research to prove it. This is a major difference between Project Walk and other exercise-based programs.
All of the exercises done at Project Walk will be completed outside of a wheelchair. The emphasis is on load-bearing activities that may help increase function, bone density, muscle mass, sensation, and circulation.
IMPROVED QUALITY OF LIFE
Through an intense exercise program your body may become more resilient to common SCI ailments such as pressure sores, urinary tract infections, blood pressure problems and poor circulation.
