    Select Physical Therapy is proud to be an official sponsor of the Marine Corp Historic Half Marathon in Fredericksburg, VA this weekend.  Please stop by our booth at the Expo on Sat May 16, and at our tent at the race on Sunday May 17 where we will be doing pre-race taping, and leading post-race stretching sessions.  We are excited to help sponsor this event for the third consecutive year!

    We are also proud to sponsor several runners this weekend.  Good luck to our own 5K participants Aaron Vitiello and Courtney Edwards; 10K participants Kayla Sarji and Chelsea Hill, and Half Marathon participants Casey McInerny and Kevin Fang!

    This year we are fortunate to sponsor handy-cyclist Michael Murphy.  Please read part of Michael's story, in his own words.....

    "Seven years ago—as a vibrant college Junior, excited for the future—a rooftop fall one night left me critically injured, and my life forever changed. From twenty-five feet up I landed flat on my back; on impact my T-9 vertebrae exploded, shattering like glass…completely severing my spinal cord. I was only 21 at the time, a two-sport athlete, and eagerly awaiting Officer Candidate School in the Marine Corps after graduation a year hence. In single moment, my able-bodied life came to an abrupt end, and suddenly my new paraplegic life began.

    Today I am stronger and more motivated than ever. My accident in 2007 opened doors to the adaptive sports of handcycling and monosking, and life as a challenged athlete—and it wasn’t long before I set my sights on being among the best in the world and competing in the Paralympics. Since then, I’ve emerged as a top handcyclist in my age bracket, while also making dual-sport progress racing on the slopes." 

      Best of luck to all of the participants this weekend!

    Run for Autism

    Kevin Fang, P.T., from Select Physical Therapy Arlington is riding for autism and for his nephew, SAM IZO. Kevin will be participating in the largest cycling event dedicated to raising awareness and funding for autism.

    Bike to the Beach for autism aims to promote fitness and to support the 2 million people affected by autism.

    Autism Speaks has helped put a face on the 2 million people affected by autism and what their families deal with every day through their blog: http://www.autismspeaks.org/blog.

    The blog allows people affected by autism to write about their every-day lives and is a great place to see how your donation to Bike to the Beach for autism can help. Below are just a few outstanding entries from the blog:

    The story of Ryan Rogers, who was just diagnosed with Aspergers in 2013, and became the "first documented person in history with autism to win a medal (bronze) in kata in the 18 to 34 year old novice non-handicap division at the U.S Karate Nationals (usankf.org).

    The story of Gianna Hitsos, a high school senior on the autism spectrum who will soon begin her college career.

    The story of Chrissy Kelly (Life with Greyson) who writes about the emotions surrounding her son's autism diagnosis.

    The story of how Autism Speaks organized over 200 volunteer leaders from classrooms, boardrooms, small towns, big cities, and service sectors from across the country convened for three days.

    That is why Kevin is biking for autism this year. To make a difference. To help get us one step closer to a pain-free future and improving quality of life any way he can!

    Please consider signing up to walk and/or donating to Kevin's page to get him one step closer to his fundraising goal and helping this amazing cause. Please forward this message to all your friends and family, too. The more support we have, the better.
