Team Push to Walk raised more than $18,000 for Riverdale, NJ-based Push to Walk via their participation in the recent New Jersey Marathon.
Each member of the 19-person group—comprised of staff, family, friends, community members, and a Push to Walk client who participated using a handcycle—was committed to raising at least $500 for Push to Walk from running the marathon.
So far, the team has raised more than $18,000 in donations, and more is being collected, according to a media release from Push to Walk.
Push to Walk provides individualized workouts and resources to persons with spinal cord injuries and other forms of paralysis. However, since the services are not covered by insurance, and client fees are unable to cover all of Push to Walk’s operating costs, fund raising events are necessary to help cover the difference, per the release.
“Our clients come to us because they see an improvement in their quality of life. We work hard to support our clients by fund raising so cost does not stand in the way of them achieving their goals,” explains Cynthia Templeton, president of Push to Walk, in the release.

I know a program down in South Florida that my husband attended last year with his spinal cord injury. It is called the Center for Neuro Recovery. I cannot tell you how much of an amazing place it is to watch my husband after it traumatic spinal cord injury be able to regain strength, function and control. It’s centers like these around the United States that make all the difference in the world when one suffers a neurological injury. I wish everyone the best and I’m so happy to see these companies flourish.
