Wow, we’ve been open six years!! I’m never sure if I should call this a birthday or an anniversary – according to Webster’s, we fit both definitions. Both are fine, and both express the celebratory nature of recognizing so many accomplishments!

By now, most of you know the story of Push to Walk and the story of my son, Darren and our family. If this is the first time reading my blog, or your first encounter with Push to Walk, please visit the About Us section of our website for more information. A very abbreviated version is that after Darren sustained a spinal cord injury in July 2004, we traveled back and forth to California for an intensive exercise program and subsequently realized that New Jersey needed a program like this. With none around, we started our own. Darren came up with the name, and six years later we are not only sustaining ourselves but growing in several different ways.

Check out this link for some new videos of Darren using the Gait Harness Walker, and take a look at some of our other client videos, too. They are ALL amazing!

With more trainers, more clients, more board members and added administrative staff, we are providing a unique exercise program that is not only focused on people with spinal cord injuries, but now includes traumatic brain injuries, MS and stroke as well. Our trainers continue to educate themselves in these areas of specialty, have started doing research and work together as a team to ensure that our clients receive the best possible workouts every single day. Our board is dedicated to helping Push to Walk expand in a planned and organized fashion, and is embarking on a Strategic Planning Process to help us develop our way forward. Our supporters continue to amaze us with their generosity which is critical to our existence. And our administrative team is behind the scenes making sure everything runs smoothly.

We thank our clients for putting their trust in us to help them in their journey. Each person is in a different place when they join Push to Walk – physically, emotionally, financially. We develop relationships with them, help them identify goals and work with them to achieve those goals. We are grateful for the opportunity to be a part of their lives and help them succeed.

Thank you to everyone who has helped Push to Walk come so far! Together we are pushing forward and making a difference!
