Unite 2 Fight Paralysis: Working 2 Walk, October 22-24!
Unite 2 Fight Paralysis' 15th Annual Working 2 Walk Science & Advocacy Symposium is moving online this year! This event brings together research scientists, clinicians, and community advocates, along with investors and industry leaders to exchange information and strategies for achieving recovery from SCI.
Because of this year's online format, attending is easier than ever- and tickets are 75% off (just $35!) for those navigating paralysis and their family members. You can learn more about the event and register here.
Updated Air Filtration System On-Site
We are happy to report that our landlords have updated all of Pushing Boundaries Air Filters to the CDC-recommended MERV-13 Filters. Not only do these filters help with PB's ongoing efforts to maximize client safety and minimize the chances of COVID transmission, they've also come in handy with the recent smoky air.
Kristen Knight promoted to Lead Exercise Therapist
Earlier this month, Kristen was promoted to Lead Therapist! She joins Shelby in this unique role that keeps her actively working with clients, but also allows her to stretch her administrative muscles behind the scenes. For clients who like seeing Kristen on the Exercise Therapy Floor, fret not- she'll still be out there working with everyone- but now the administrative team also gets to benefit from her skills!
PB Founder and Board Member named Bellevue LifeSpring's Volunteer of the Year
If you know Pushing Boundaries, you likely know our beloved Sharon Northrup. Sharon and her husband Allan founded Pushing Boundaries in 2005, and she continues to serve the PB community as our Board Treasurer- amongst MANY other things!
PB isn't Sharon's only passion. She has been an active volunteer with Bellevue LifeSpring for over thirty years, where earlier this summer she received the Trish Carpenter Volunteer of the Year Award. This award is presented to "a volunteer who has exhibited extraordinary support of Bellevue LifeSpring, often behind the scenes and without regard for acknowledgment."
Bellevue Life Spring's mission is to foster stability and self-sufficiency for Bellevue’s children and their families through programs that provide food, clothing, education and emergency assistance.
ATTENTION AMAZON SHOPPERS!
Did you know that Amazon will donate a percentage of your purchases to any nonprofit you choose? It's a great, easy way to show your support in the community.
On our computers, we've changed our Amazon bookmark to www.smile.amazon.com. Everything still works the same, and you'd never know a difference... except a little bit of our purchase total goes to our chosen non-profit. You can learn more about how it works here.
