You’ve heard of a dance marathon – how about a step-a-thon? Join the current and former patients, friends and family of Magee Rehabilitation Hospital on July 19 – 20 for the second annual Walk It Out 24 Hour Step-a-Thon to benefit people living with paralysis.
Our goal is to have current and former patients walking (assist provided by therapists as needed) on a treadmill in the Locomotor Training Clinic for 24 hours continuously! Participants will be assigned to a 30-60 minute block of time.
Participants can bring a friend/family member, or will be provided with a “buddy” that will walk on a standard treadmill during rest periods to ensure that a treadmill will be running throughout the 24 hours. Participants are asked to obtain sponsors for each minute walked or total stepping time on treadmill. Money raised will go towards the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation’s NeuroRecovery Network and Magee’s Locomotor Training clinic to continue progressing treatment and research for people with spinal cord injuries.
If you are interested in participating, please fill out the form below with your name, contact information, “buddy” info and your preferred time slot. You can also contact Mel, Martina or Liz at (215) 218-3913 or contact email of the following: Erin O’Donnell firstname.lastname@example.org Martina Galli email@example.com
