Push To Walk
Founded in 2007, Push To Walk, is a non-profit organization based out of New Jersey, which provides exercise programs for those with neurological conditions to help improve their quality of life.
Founders Cynthia and John Templeton were inspired to create this non-profit after their son, who had sustained a C5 spinal cord injury and had completed all his rehabilitation therapy, wanted to continue to improve his abilities.
This gym offers their clients, after an assessment of abilities, strengths and goals, a trainer who will work with them on their personally designed exercise program.
The goal of this non-profit organization is to improve those living with neurological conditions, such as those with spinal cord injuries or Multiple Sclerosis, a way in which to improve their day to day life.

It’s a very commendable initiative to improve lives and foster good life style.
As someone who has had spinal surgery I understand how important it is to continue to move. I think this organization is great!
What an excellent theme! Learning about nonprofit organizations is a worthy pursuit. 🙂
I am learning as well. Thank you for stopping by to read and comment.
Reading a little about the family that started that non-profit – amazing how quickly so many lives can change.
I think quite a lot of non-profits are started from a personal tragedy. It’s a great way to focus on making something positive out of a negative situation.
