Spinal Cord Injury Support Group join Shake-A-Leg for a Day of Celebration
By Sebastian Mallens
Last month was a time of celebration for many reasons, including the holidays and the new year. For the Spinal Cord Injury Support Group of South Florida, it was a time to finally get together and celebrate their resilience and dedication to their mission, especially throughout the pandemic. People from the Nirvana Project, Woody Foundation, Miami Project to Cure Paralysis, and the Boys Scouts Troop 80 were also in attendance.
“We are very appreciative of the help we got from the people at Shake-A-Leg, the volunteers, and the people who work there that made this possible,” says Tatiana, the board member treasurer for the Spinal Cord Injury Support Group. “We didn’t think that so many people would show up because of COVID! Everything went smooth and it was great to see people get back out on the boats again.”
This is the first time, since the beginning of the pandemic, that everyone from the Spinal Cord Injury Support Group was able to gather in person again. Shake-A-Leg is excited to see everyone together, stronger and healthier than ever, and stand beside SCISG in their mission to provide commodities for cures, integrate injured people with society, provide support, and show that everything is possible to help people move on with their lives.
The SCISG is looking forward to another event in March, depending on how things go regarding COVID. As always, we welcome them with open arms.
