Project Walk

I just learned of an organization that exists to help spinal cord injured people who may have the ability to walk, to help them do just that. It's called Project Walk and it's main location is in Carlsbad, California.

They discuss how important the first first year, and especially, the first six months post injury are in getting SCI's up and walking again. They are seeing some amazing results. I am very encouraged for new injuries by reading their website. You can view their site by clicking here. Their site is full of interesting information.

According to their website, their Mission is: Project Walk® exists to provide an improved quality of life for people with spinal cord injuries through intense exercise-based recovery programs, education, support and encouragement.

If you are, or know someone who has just suffered a spinal cord injury, I encourage you to at least check out Project Walk and see if you might be a candidate for their program.

Please feel free to comment. I look forward to them.

I have heard of many success stories from Project Walk...they were also featured on Extreme Home Makeover a year or so ago, when Kristina Ripatti (a cop shot and paralyzed in the line of duty) attended Project Walk. They have some inspiring videos on their website.

I wish I knew about them six years ago when I was hurt. Sounds like an interesting program. Thanks Mike for sharing it. I'll have to add it to my blog under my sites of interest.
