BENEFITING: NEXTSTEP

Danelle Selinger

THE STORY:

Here's My Story:
I am running the Rock N' Roll San Diego Marathon on June 5th. I am running in support of a wonderful charity, NextStep Fitness, that brings the latest in fitness innovation for the health and wellness of individuals living with spinal cord injuries and other forms of paralysis.
In August of 2006, a tragic accident left my friend, Janne Kouri, paralyzed. Doctors told him that he would never walk again. Three years later, he took his first steps which were documented on ABC’s “Good Morning America” http://abcnews.go.com/video/playerIndex?id=8097992.

With over 6 million people in the US living with paralysis, we all know someone, a brother, sister, friend, neighbor, or colleague, struggling with a disability who deserves better, and that story reminds us that everyone should have the same chance Janne did.
While many might call this a miracle, his recovery has not been the result of chance. He was lucky enough to have access to the best doctors and therapeutic techniques. Yet for most victims of paralysis even the most basic care is too costly.
Thus, he created NextStep Fitness and dedicated his life to making the most effective paralysis rehabilitation in the world available to all.
Please join me in support of NextStep Fitness and help me raise money for their scholarship fund for individuals from low-income households.

Much Love,
Danelle
