Are you familiar with Push To Walk? Long time Kinnelon residents, Cynthia and John Templeton, formed Push To Walk in 2007 after their son, Darren, sustained a C5 spinal cord injury (SCI) in July 2004. The organization inspires and motivates people with spinal cord injuries to realize their individual potential. Located in Riverdale, NJ, the non-profit organization provides rigorous one on one workouts in a specialized gym with certified trainers utilizing state-of-the-art equipment.

Kristen says, if you don't play tennis, simply come lunch with the Push to Walk Ladies Tennis Event participants. Several vendors - Stella & Dot, the hottest in jewelry, B-Skinz Ladies Wear, tennis and casual wear, and Court Time Clothing - are participating and will have available fashionable yet functional tennis apparel from Fila, Fetch, Jerdog, Lija, 4 All by JoFit, DTL, Tail and more, and tennis bags from Whak Sak and Maggie Mather. They are donating a portion of their proceeds to Push to Walk.
Sounds like a not-to-be-missed event for a terrific organization! I hope you'll consider participating.
