THE STORY:

Welcome! My name is Jeff Laprade, I had the privilege of meeting Janne a few months ago through our mutual friend Scott Bailey.  Immediately Janne struck me as inspirational. 

  For those of you who don't know, my father lived for years battling Multiple Sclerosis, a mysterious auto immune disease where white blood cells attack your bodies own nerve endings.  This led him to be periodically in and out of a wheelchair.  I would visit him as often as I could, and in these times he would sit or lie comfortably at home or in the hospital and I would roll around in his wheelchair.  

  Had my father had access to a infrastructure like that provided by Next Step Fitness, who knows what type of progress he could have made. For years I accompanied my father to physical therapy sessions and doctors appointments, only to see him using unspecialized equipment, doing generic excersizes that helped keep him mobile but did not facilitate the strive to impove.

    Motivated by my friends and Realizeculture.com and Janne's overwhelmingly positive energy, Jesse, Sean and I are here to make as big of a dent as I can in the financial burden Next faces in their honorable mission.  I am blessed to have another light in my life like Janne Korri, please help me reach out an support a system that is constantly working to restore the freedom of walking to so many!  One love.
