    WASHINGTON, April 12 /U.S. Newswire/ -- Under the banner of CureParalysisNow.org, over 150 wheelchair activists from the Christopher Reeve Paralysis Foundation, The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis, The Spinal Cord Injury Project and the online CareCure Community joined together with members of Congress to voice their support for the Christopher Reeve Paralysis Act and funding to establish a clinical trial network for spinal cord injuries today on the West Steps of the U.S. Capitol.

    Organized by volunteer grassroots activists from the online CareCure Community of over 9,000 members, the 10 a.m. rally is a "first" for the largely invisible disabled population.

    Yahoo has it too . . . go there and vote the story up in the little box at the bottom that asks you to rate its importance. They'll keep it posted longer if people are reading it.

    Favorite lines: "This is an amazing opportunity to further Christopher Reeve's legacy," explained a jubilant Betheny Winkler, one of the organizers. "It's inspiring to see all of these people travel so far under difficult circumstances to achieve one common goal."

    A jubilant Betheny! Rock, on, people.

    Also, here's a link to a story a friend front-paged on her blog for us today. I wrote it this am at, like, 5 o'clock, watching the sky grow light and praying for the kids in DC.
