The Recovery Project (TRP), a provider of aggressive, focused and effective physical and occupational therapy and training to people with traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries, and other neurological disorders, announced today that the company has signed on as an official sponsor of the Michigan Parkinson Foundation's "I Gave My Sole for Parkinson's Walk-a-thon and 5K Run Westside" on Sunday, June 8 in Northville. TRP co-CEO and lead physical therapist Polly Swingle made the announcement.
"We work closely with many individuals affected by Parkinson's Disease through our Parkinson's Wellness Recovery (PWR!) program, which optimizes brain health and targets physical deficits to encourage and empower those with the disease to stay active, motivated and exercising," said Swingle. "Supporting the Michigan Parkinson Walk-a-thon was the perfect extension of our mission and commitment, and we look forward to making a difference with the community at this wonderful event."
Registration for the walk will take place from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., with opening ceremonies kicking off at 10:45 a.m. The 5K will begin at 11 a.m., and will conclude with an awards presentation at 12 p.m. Last year's Westside walk and Eastside walk held in St. Clair Shores the day prior raised a record $100,000 and attracted more than 1,300 people.
