Push to Walk (PTW) is a nonprofit 501(c)3 located in Oakland, New Jersey. Our mission at PTW is to provide individualized workouts and resources to people with spinal cord injuries and other forms of paralysis to optimize current quality of life and to prepare for future medical advancements.
Americans living with paralysis are among the most underserved populations in our society, particularly after they complete traditional therapy. Over the past 12 years, PTW has served as the only training facility in the northern New Jersey area to provide activity-based training for the paralysis community. Limited options for working out creates further barriers for individuals to participate in other aspects of society, including living independently, attending school, working outside the home, and just being socially active. Our clients build up strength and mobility to be able to achieve many of these personal goals and reintegrate into society.
quality of life.
PTW was founded in 2007 by people who have been directly impacted by paralysis, and understand the physical, psychological, emotional, and financial effects it can have on those who experience such trauma. Our founder sustained a C5 spinal cord injury after diving into shallow water in July 2004. He was eighteen years old at the time. Upon completing traditional in-patient and out-patient rehabilitation therapy, he was looking for a way to improve and increase his abilities. Both his work with a personal trainer as well as his participation in an intensive exercise program in Carlsbad, California inspired him to create a similar program in New Jersey.
