On January 17, 2013 life changed drastically for Brooks Dremely and his family. Unfortunately, Brooks experienced a devastating spinal cord injury which has challenged him and his family. After a long hospital stay and therapy at TIRR, the family began to search for additional avenues to augment Brooks’s lifelong recovery process. At the top of their list was Project Walk® Paralysis Recovery Centers, unfortunately they were located in California. So off the Dremely family went to learn and experience Project Walk. “We were so impressed and inspired by the excitement, hope and knowledge presented at Project Walk. What else could we do but bring Project Walk to the Houston area where there was nothing like the experience we had just had!” http://vimeo.com/114744821 “As a family, we opened the first Project Walk Recovery Center in the southern part of the US, located here in Missouri City and we look forward to wonderful things.”
Project Walk® Paralysis Recovery Centers, the world leader in paralysis recovery, provides an improved quality of life for people with disabilities through intense activity-based recovery programs, education, training, research and development. Project Walk understands that every client has special needs; therefore, we offer several programs to best meet those needs and optimize our clients’ chances for recovery. Those options include both facility recovery options and home recovery options which provide different levels of support. Our facility recovery programs will provide the client with one-on-one training, for a 2-3 hour training session 2 to 3 days a week.
For all those recovering from paralysis, the cost is immense. Project Walk is not covered through insurance which leaves the burden on the individual and family. Through the Project Walk Fun/Run we hope to build a scholarship fund so we can achieve the “Dremely family goal” of helping as many people as we can who are paralyzed and would like to come to Project Walk® Houston. All proceeds from the Fun Run will stay right here in Houston and will be used for only those wanting to utilize the Houston location.
The Project Walk Recovery Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to improving the quality of life of persons with paralysis. The Foundation strives to make alternative activity-based recovery treatments for paralysis available to all affected individuals regardless of that person’s financial condition.
Through the Project Walk Recovery Foundation, people living with a disability are given the chance to regain the independence that was lost. The Foundation continues to prove that paralysis does not always mean a life confined to a wheelchair, but instead promotes that recovery is possible!
