UroMed Sponsors Beyond The Chair’s 2013 Golf Benefit & Fundraiser

It’s our pleasure to introduce you to the team at Beyond The Chair in San Antonio, Texas!

On June 1, 2013, UroMed joined forces with Beyond The Chair to support and sponsor their fundraising efforts during the organization’s 1st Annual Beyond The Chair Golf Benefit held at Silverhorn Golf Club of Texas.  Based in San Antonio, Beyond The Chair exists to provide an improved quality of life for individuals with spinal cord injuries and other neurological/physical disabilities through intensive exercise programs to enhance overall functional capacity.

Beyond The Chair offers a supervised safe and effective exercise program for those living with spinal cord injuries and other neurological/physical disabilities. They utilize a variety of exercise science techniques and modalities to enable their clients to achieve optimal functional recovery and well-being.  Beyond The Chair understands that every neurological condition is unique and their Certified Neuro-Fitness Specialists design one-on-one custom-made exercise programs to meet the specific needs and goals for clients of any age, level of injury, or condition.

The Beyond The Chair Golf Benefit served as a fundraising effort with the goal of raising financial support for the following:

  • Specialized exercise equipment and accessories
  •  Grants for one-on-one training
  • Grants for group exercise
