Spinal Cord Injury Survivor Shares Motivational Story at Free Lunch & Learn

BATON ROUGE, La. – As part of National Rehabilitation Awareness week, Baton Rouge Rehab Hospital (BRRH) will host a September 17 Lunch and Learn event featuring Paul Erway, spinal cord injury survivor and motivational speaker.

Erway had his first life-changing accident in 1980, with a second major accident in 2006. His story is unique, but his insights are relevant to anyone, regardless of abilities or disabilities.

He is the author of “50 Abilities, Unlimited Possibilities: Wheeling through the 50 States, from Jackson to the Boston Marathon Bombing.” In the book, Erway chronicles his team on their goal to complete 50 marathons in 50 states in 50 weeks through the Christopher & Dana Reeves Foundation.

The noon event will be held at BRRH, in the 2nd floor dining room. Seating is limited, so to RSVP please call (225) 231-3123 or email Roxane.Bingham@BRRehab.com.

BRRH will host multiple events as part of National Rehab Week, including the Roll On! Bowl On! Bowling Tournament on Sept. 17 to raise awareness for spinal cord injuries and an Amputee Support Group meeting on Sept. 20. Find more details here.
