Project Walk "Steps To Recovery"

The Project Walk “Steps to Recovery” event was a great success! Held on Saturday, October 13 in Carlsbad, CA at the Project Walk facility, Joe had a great group of supporters come down to cheer him on as he took “steps” using a walker. Approximately 30 Project Walk clients participated before more than 700 spectators! Joe had a support group of about 20 people including, family, friends and relatives. Joe was able to take steps using a walker with the help of the Project Walk trainers, very similar to one of the videos posted on his blog and in the video section. He did it better than ever before and was able to reach the finish line looking great!
