Third time’s the charm for Magee’s 3rd annual “Walk It Out” Step-a-Thon challenge! Former patients, family, friends, and staff united to keep a treadmill running for 24 hours straight from 5 P.M. on Friday, October 23 to 5 P.M. on Saturday, October 24. The reason? To benefit people living with paralysis or other disabilities. All proceeds from the fundraiser go toward 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.
Check out the slideshow below of all 24 hours of fun. That blushing bride? Its Magee PT Kristen Snyder! She and her groom Matt brought their entire bridal party and a generous donation to the event. Now that’s true love!
Many thanks to all who supported the event by walking, donating, and cheering. If you’d like to contribute, there’s still time. Visit the donation page to help Magee “Walk to Victory over Paralysis.”
