Spinal Cord Injury Walk 2009 Recap

Saturday, October 10th, 2009 was the Spinal Cord Injury Walk 2009. We couldn't have asked for a better October day this year considering the weather recently. In the middle of a two week stretch of rain and temperatures in the high 40s, we had a beautiful sunny day in the low to mid 50s.

There were 150+ people in attendance. After people registered and got their shirts, there was plenty of time to get a bite to eat, , listen to live music, and brownse the many silent auction items that were donated. It may have been a brisk trip around the track, but the hot coffee, hot chocolate, and warm hearts and personalities inside the pavilion was more than enough to make up for it.

We would like to take the opportunity to to thank all of our sponsors, volunteers,and the participants that made the Spinal Cord Injury Walk 2009 such a success for the third year in a row. We look forward to gathering again next year to show our support and raise awareness and funds for spinal cord injury research, advocacy, and the Northwest Indiana Spinal Cord Injury Group.

Hey, Joe! Thanks for the update, and I'm glad it was a success . . . not that I ever doubted you all could pull it off in style AGAIN.

Proud to be your friend . . .
