UroMed & Life After Spinal Cord Injury Invade South Carolina To Support SCI Events

We were busy in South Carolina last week, taking part in not one but TWO major events designed to assist people with spinal cord injuries!

Our first stop was a visit to Roger C. Peace Hospital-Rehabilitation [RCPH] in Greenville, SC to support and participate in their charity golf tournament.  Our financial gift and onsite participation helped RCPH make the best equipment, therapies and care available to Upstate residents with spinal cord injuries or other physical rehabilitation needs.

RPCH is located in Greenville, South Carolina

UroMed & Life After Spinal Cord Injury [LASCI] moved on from there to a weekend sports event hosted by the Spinal Cord Injury Association of South Carolina.  Wheeling in New Directions (WIND) was a special event for individuals with spinal cord injuries and their family members held on October 15, 2011 at Saluda Shoals River Center in Columbia, SC. This one-day event was a program of the South Carolina Spinal Cord Injury Association, and offered a discovery of what life can hold after a spinal cord injury.

Throughout the day’s educational sessions, attendees were challenged to “dare to do more in their chairs.” In addition, special demonstrations were held, including a wheelchair tennis exhibition and a dragster built from scratch with hand controls.

David Williams, who has transverse myelitis and is a sales representative for UroMed, also volunteers as a peer counselor for UroMed’s non-profit program: Life After Spinal Cord Injury.  David led the wheelchair tennis clinic for participants at the WIND event.

Keynote speaker Scott Chesney also shared how paralysis has not stopped him from having a successful career, a wife and children, and pursuing a wide range of personal interests. The day also included an exhibitor tent, a relaxed barbecue lunch and much more.
