Blow it out!


The AM classes fired up HW with some outstanding performances! Looks like PM is gonna have a true Winter HW Murph experience…kick it!

Tomorrow, Thursday Dec. 27 5:25PM: IM ABLE Handcycle Presentation
If you are attending the 530PM Hero Workout, arrive a bit early to support this presentation. Everyone is welcome to stop by for this brief presentation. Thank you.

IM ABLE is proud to present a Top End handcycle to the Magee Rehabilitation Outpatient Program in Philadelphia.  Keith Newarla, the Wheelchair Sports Program Coordinator for Magee, will be accepting the handcycle on behalf of Magee.  Magee currently supports wheelchair tennis, rugby and basketball teams, but there are individuals who are interested in pursuing racing.  By providing this handcycle, IM ABLE is helping individuals with disabilities bridge the gap between their acute rehabilitation to a life of independence and involvement within their community.

The handcycle will be used to further interest in Magee’s racing team that has participated in the Philadelphia Marathon in 2011 and 2012.  It will be used in the outpatient program to enable newcomers to racing to try the sport.  While the handcycle will remain on campus during the week, disabled athletes will also be able to borrow the handcycle to compete in races during the weekends.   IM ABLE looks forward to maintaining a relationship with Magee to both support and encourage the establishment of their racing team and track program.
