Meet our Newest Board Member, Nancy Nicholas!

We are VERY excited to welcome our newest Board Member, Nancy Nicholas to the Board.

Nancy is a retired executive of the Boeing Company where she began her career in research and development and culminated in program management. She has been a client of Pushing Boundaries since 2013 and is passionate about the work they do to bring exercise therapy to the paralysis community.

While eager to stay fit and healthy, Nancy also leverages her scientific training and personal experience to improve the lives of others living with spinal cord injury by serving as the Spinal Cord Injury Community Liaison for the Blackmore Lab at Marquette University, by sharing her lived experience with researchers at the International Collaboration on Repair Discoveries (ICORD) in Vancouver, Canada, and as a member of the Harborview Medical Center Assistive Technology Laboratory Advisory Board.


Congratulations to our friends at The Brain Injury Alliance of Washington!

Dreary weather didn't stop our friends at the BIAWA, as they hosted their 12th Annual Walk, Run, and Roll on April 30th!

PB was proud to sponsor the event, as supporters from around the region turned out to raise funds for this great organization.

Are you or a loved one navigating a Brain Injury? If so, The BIAWA has a wide variety of resources and programs to help make the journey smoother. Check out all they do HERE!

Our team cheered on the participants! Pictured above, from left to right: PB Founder, Sharon Northrup; PB Programs Manager, Kristen Knight; PB Board Member Marci Muhlestein; PB Board Member, Andrea Tobon.


Thank You!

Because of you, GiveBIG was 'BIG' a success!

Together we raised over $11,000 on May 3rd and 4th!

You didn't have to give to Pushing Boundaries, but many of you did.

...and that's pretty amazing.

In case you missed it the first time around, our team put together a 'Thank you Message'....



While attending the 2022 Spinal Cord Injury Summit last weekend, Kristen stumbled across this 'new to us' resource we wanted to share.

Grip Solutions has products designed to simplify daily living and enhance independence for those navigating paralysis.

We will be ordering a few things for the facility, and they gave us a discount code to share! If you want to order anything from them, use discount code 'TVH10' for 10% off!

To be clear, this is not a paid endorsement- we just liked the product and wanted to pass the info on to you!
