This Sunday is the 7th Annual Long Island Run For The Warriors® in Lindenhurst, Long Island. This photo is from the 2012 race and features two ReWalkers, who participated in the Spinal Cord Damage Research Center at the James J Peters VA Medical Center in Bronx, NY. The ReWalk is a robot-assisted exoskeleton and permits a person with motor-complete paraplegia to stand, walk over ground, and ascend/descend stairs. It was an emotional experience for everyone in the community to be part of.
