Project Walk and over 300 supporters celebrated on the rooftop of the Western Medical Supply, Co. building all evening. Before the Padres took on the Arizona Diamondbacks, Project Walk invaded the field! Our very first client, Mike Thomas, threw the first pitch, demonstrating the extent of what can be achieved at Project Walk through the endless dedication, hard work, and hope we experience here daily. Other highlights included client Joey Abicca demonstrating Ekso Bionic’s innovative bionic exoskeleton, Cory Hahn’s inspirational road to recovery story, and the National Anthem brilliantly sung by our very own singer/songwriter KADA (who became long time client Barney Miller’s fiancé later in the evening!).
The rest of the night was spent on the rooftop rooting for the Padres, enjoying the stadium buffet, and bidding on various silent auction items.
We extend a very big “Thank you” to everyone from Project Walk, Ekso Bionics, our corporate sponsors, and our loving community who came out to support Project Walk and all of our local SCI heroes! More pictures from the event should be posted shortly, so please check back soon.
Also, save the date for our next special event Steps to Recovery on October 27, 2012!
