Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!

There is a lot of love at Push to Walk every day, but it seems fitting to recognize it today.  We love that our clients and their families put their trust in us to help in the journeys they are on after spinal cord injury, brain injury, transverse myelitis, Multiple Sclerosis, and stroke.

We love that our donors choose Push to Walk as a cause to support, knowing their dollars go directly to our program and helping our clients regain strength, function, and independence.

We love that so many people have contributed to our success by donating their time, talents, energy and material goods to make Push to Walk a successful, sustainable organization.

And personally, I love our entire Push to Walk team.  Not only our staff members, volunteers and interns, but their families too.  So many people who have taken an interest in what we do and how we do it.  Our staff members who especially bring a passion and commitment to their jobs every day-I love you all!

So when we hear or say those three little words that are sometimes so hard to say, know that the meaning behind them is so much more…a testament to the fact that love really does make the world go round.

Enjoy the day with those you love, and let them know you love them!

With Valentine’s Day upon us, it was fitting that the New York Spinal Cord Injury Association chose to show some love and honor two very special people: Boyd Melson and Dr. Adam Stein. At Slate in New York City, a Mardi Gras fund raiser was held last night, and according to one attendee I spoke with, it was a lot of fun!

Their guest of honor was Adam B. Stein, M.D., Chairman Dept. of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Hofstra North Shore-Long Island Jewish School of Medicine-The North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System.  Dr. Stein  received the 2013 Humanitarian of the Year award in recognition of his many achievements in the field of rehabilitation medicine and unfailing support of the SCI community.

Special Guest and MVP (Most Valuable Philanthropist) Boyd “Rainmaker” Melson – professional boxer and founder of Team Fight to Walk was honored for his generous support of SCI research and the quest for a cure.

I am honored to know both of these people, and recognize how valuable their contributions to the SCI community are. Thank you for all you do!

NYCSCIA is run entirely by volunteers, ensuring that all donations go toward funding programs and services that directly benefit people with spinal cord injuries.
