Kinesiology Networking Fair at the University of Guelph - Humber

Last week we were invited to attend the University of Guelph- Humber Kinesiology Networking Fair, at the Humber College Campus. This was our second time attending this annual event. It is here where Kinesiology students studying in their third or fourth year are invited to network with various employers in order to make connections, and search for career or placement opportunities. We were pleasantly surprised to learn about another program within Humber College that benefits from this fair.

Walk It Off Visits Project Walk Orlando!

As many of you know, our SCI Recovery Trainers, Taylor, Alyssa and Rebecca, went down to Orlando for the last week of January to visit our friends at Project Walk! If you are unaware of Walk It Off’s origin, Heather and Kevin went down to Project Walk in 2009 shortly after Kevin’s accident. While at Project Walk, they were amazed by the innovative physical therapy Kevin received that was focused specifically on spinal cord injury recovery. After their time at Project Walk, Heather and Kevin decided this special type of therapy needed to be available in Canada and that’s how Walk It Off was born. Over the years, Walk It Off has maintained a special relationship with Project Walk Orlando. Heather and Kevin have continued to visit Project Walk Orlando over the years to experience their therapy techniques; not to mention getting a small reprieve from the Canadian winters in sunny Orlando. This year, the SCI Recovery Trainers were the lucky ones heading down to Project Walk Orlando to experience and learn first hand all about the exciting sessions happening there!
