Good Sports: Wheelchair Athlete/Project Walk Donation

July 13, 2013 12:36:03 AM PDT
Many of our clients here at Project Walk Dallas rely on the generosity and support of their friends, family and communities to afford the cost of our rehabilitation program.

At Project Walk Dallas we use the same principles of elite athletic conditioning, formulating intense exercise programs that use performance conditioning to reorganize and reactivate the nervous system. When they human body is deprived of the effects of gravitational loading (which is the effect all our clients face sitting in a wheelchair daily), there is a loss of muscle mass, bone density, circulation, lung capacity, coordination and Central Nervous System activity. The modalities used at Project Walk Dallas work to counteract these symptoms. If you would like to help support your loved one in their journey towards recovery the following outlines acceptable methods for donating. Every hour at Project Walk Dallas costs $100 and clients generally work with a specialist for 2-3 hours per day, 2-4 times per week. Thus in a given month the cost of our program ranges from $1,600 - $4,800.
