    My life every fall - SCI Walk - Northwest Indiana

    Every fall for the past 3 years... My life has revolved around the Spinal Cord Injury Walk. It seems to be a all consuming job. Setting up the event, getting business sponsors, ordering shirts, publicizing, getting walker participants, and silent auction donations always seems to take a lot more energy that I expect every year... no matter how much help I get. This year is no different it's almost like a full time job. I complain while I'm doing it, then I feel really good about it when it's over. Here it is... my life until October 11, 2009.

    Spinal Cord Injury Walk 2009




    Everyone is invited to participate in the Spinal Cord Injury Walk 2009!
    This year we have seen some amazing developments with the passage of the Christopher and Dana Reeve Paralysis Act and the Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act. Now is the time to press on and continue advocating for cure research.

    The Northwest Indiana Spinal Cord Injury Group is also growing as more spinal cord injured individuals become aware of our monthly meetings. The support we receive from each other in all areas of life is an invaluable resource for most of us.

    We are asking for your support as a walker or a team leader in the Spinal Cord Injury Walk 2009, so we may continue to support the research and advocacy needed to help future spinal cord injuries, and to keep the Northwest Indiana Spinal Cord Injury Group going strong to encourage those in the region living with spinal cord injuries to live happy, healthy and productive lives.



    The Spinal Cord Injury Walk 2009 will be held on October 10, 2009 at the Old Fairgrounds Park in Valparaiso, Indiana from Noon to 4pm, with Cornhole/Bean Bag Toss Tournament to follow at 6pm.
