Working 2 Walk pictures

Unite 2 Fight Paralysis, a national advocacy organization has posted pictures from the last four years of their Working 2 Walk Symposium/Rallies.

W2W is a three day event held in Washington DC, that unites the scientists working on a cure for paralysis and the patient advocates lobbying and raising awareness. For two days there is an exchange of ideas between the two groups, from which encouragement and inspiration grows. The third day is reserved for visiting your lawmakers and telling them what is most important to you, and urging them to support legislation that could have a positive effect on the lives of those living with paralysis.

All four can be found here or the slide shows are below.

Also, Kate Willette wrote an entertaining and informative blog that covered the entire event. You can find links to her blog by clicking here.
