This year, Walk It Off is also fundraising for a larger facility! We have been hard at work growing over the last couple years and we are outgrowing our current home and looking to expand into a bigger one - Not that we don’t like all being in such close quarters, but we think everyone can agree, it’s getting a bit tight!

One of the most common secondary health concerns regarding clients/patients with spinal cord injuries (SCIs) are urinary tract infections (UTI’s). SCI clients/patients experience a heightened risk of developing UTI’s from the frequent need to perform intermittent catheterization to empty their bladders on a daily basis. The average incidence rate of UTI’s is 10.3 per 1000 catheterizations. Diet can play a role in prevention and treatment of UTI’s. Maintaining a diet high in Protein, Zinc and Vitamins A, C and E can help with management of UTI’s
