Project Walk Paralysis Recovery Centers has announced the opening of its first franchised location on the East Coast in fall of 2014. A company news release notes that Jacqueline and Larry Arlen own the Boston-based franchise. The Arlens first experienced Project Walk when their daughter Victoria, a paralympian swimmer, spent a few weeks at the San Diego location. Victoria, the release says, has Transverse Myelitis. When the Arlens noticed a change in Victoria, they opted to bring the Project Walk experience to their hometown.

Tim Yates, Project Walk CEO, states, “…When the Arlen family approached us about purchasing a Project Walk franchise, we felt honored to be joining forces with a family who is truly passionate about the brand.”

A spark of hope in Victoria’s eyes “changed everything for us,” says Jacqueline Arlen and she adds, “I have always known I have so much more to give. When we walked into Project Walk we felt it immediately. Victoria looked at me and said ‘mum, you just found your calling’ and I knew it to be true.”

Project Walk specializes in activity-based recovery and is based upon The Dardzinski Method. Its mission centers on providing an improved quality of life for individuals impacted by mobility related disorders.
