APRIL 2014 NEWSLETTER

TEAM SWAN

This year SWAN Rehab stood out, at the 2014 Phoenix Heart Walk. Our group was comprised of stroke survivors, staff, caregivers and supporters. Our mixed team isn't what made us unique at the heart walk it was our unity. We carried over the spirit of family as we walked together and crossed the finish line. Our team spirit started months prior to the walk. The vocational rehab team collaborated and planned a Candy Gram fundraiser, and then registered participants for the Heart Walk. After meeting at Wesley Bolin Plaza our therapy team walked with and encouraged the stroke survivors along the entire mile route. As we approached the finish line there were tears celebrating accomplishment as well as sighs of relief that it was done. We had a great time preparing and participating in the Heart Walk. Our goal was $1000 and we exceeded this goal by raising $2860!

Don't worry if you missed us this year! Be sure to join TEAM SWAN in 2015!

HEART WALK STORIES

Walking for Grandpa!

Walking for Grandpa!
Hands down the Daugherty family had the most members in our group at the Heart Walk! They were walking for Grandpa who passed away of a heart disease a year ago.

Best Heart Walk Couple

Best Heart Walk Couple
Kerry was our top fundraiser, surpassing her personal and our team goal by raising $1350!!! She walked the one mile stroke walk, and arm-in-arm with her husband and biggest cheerleader, she crossed the finish line.

Walking for Grandpa!

Karen crossed the finish line with one of her therapist, Sarah
Karen had a stroke in 2011, which affected her left side. Karen also has a hard time walking long distances but was determined to prove to her physical therapist that she would be able to complete the 1 mile stroke walk. Karen wasn't sure she was even going to make the walk, because the night before she fell and bruised her arm and elbow. Karen wasn't feeling her best but came out with her mother (who had a heart attack 7 years ago) and decided to put her best foot forward. Karen only stopped a few times to drink water and rest, but when she saw your team cheering and the pom-poms she started to get more energy. Tears flowed as Karen was approaching the finish - she made it!
