NextStep presents Wheelchair For A Day (primarily during the month of May), a fundraising and awareness campaign where people across the country will spend 24 hours in a wheelchair. The goal of the event is to raise funds and to educate the community about: (1) the daily challenges of living in a wheelchair and (2) the drastic lack of fitness, health and wellness resources that are available to the more than 6 million Americans living with paralysis.
May 31st will be the day that I take the "Wheelchair For A Day" challenge. I hope to raise a boat loadof money for NextStep Fitness, AND educate the community I live in and teach in. I am very excited for the physical and mental challenges that are to come with this fundraiser.
Please be a part of this educational and fundraising process. If we work together, we can be successful in many ways.
