Arizona marathon athletes visit University Rehabilitation Center

Grant Berthiaume (front row, from left) of Arizona, Paul Erway of Kentucky and Aaron Roux of Arizona visited University Rehabilitation Center at UMMC on Thursday, Jan. 3, to talk with patients and give a presentation as they prepare to race in Saturday's Mississippi Blues Marathon in Jackson. The race launched their goal to race in 50 marathons in 50 states in 50 weeks. Their year-long adventure is an effort to raise awareness and funds for the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation. Named after the “Superman” actor injured in a horse-riding accident in 1995, which left him paralyzed from the neck down, the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation is dedicated to discovering treatments and a cure for spinal cord injuries.

On hand to meet the athletes were Shelly Poole (back row, from left), administrator of rehabilitation services at UMMC; and URC staff members Boon Ong, physical therapist; Amy Fountain, physical therapist; Holly Burney, occupational therapist; and Meredith Duncan, occupational therapist.  (Larger image)
