Spinal Cord Injury Walk 2007

The walk was a great success! I would like to thank everyone that came out to participate, and all of sponsors and volunteers that made it possible.

We met a lot of new people, got some exercise, had some good food, won some awesome items donated by local businesses and artists, listened to some good music, and raised just over $13,000. When we combine that with prepaid sponsors and do some more math, that's around $15,000 to split three ways. The Northwest Indiana Spinal Cord Injury Group, Unite 2 Fight Paralysis, and paralysis research will all benefit from everyone's hard work and cooperation.

Here are some pictures from Mike Gard and a few from Jennifer Aitchison. Check back frequently for future postings, and meeting dates and times.

Hi Nice Blog .The detailed spine anatomy , for example, of the bronchial tree as seen through the bronchoscope is now of great importance. The introduction of laparoscopic and thoracoscopic instruments to explore and operate in the abdomen and thorax respectively has also opened new vistas as surgeons require to learn their anatomical landmarks through these approaches.
