Step It Up Recovery Center becomes Project Walk Orlando

Longwood, FL – Project Walk Orlando would like to announce their recent name change from Step It Up Recovery Center. Project Walk Orlando is one of a handful of Project Walk® Certified Facilities in the U.S. After more than two years in business the local 501(c)3 non-profit organization decided to change their name to show their alliance with their parent company.

Open since 2009, Project Walk Orlando is the only facility in Florida to utilize an innovative, exercise-based recovery program designed specifically for persons with spinal cord injuries (SCI). The program gives the opportunity to those who have been told by traditional therapy practitioners they will never recover function after a traumatic SCI. SCI specialists, who work one on one with clients, remove them from the confines of a wheelchair to work out their entire body, not just the parts unaffected by paralysis. “I don’t know what I would do without Project Walk Orlando,” said client, Amanda Perla.

Preceding the name change, Project Walk Orlando also moved into a new facility. Previously located in Sanford, Florida, Project Walk Orlando is now located at 330 Harbour Isle Way, Suite 1090 in Longwood, Florida, 32771. If you live in the Orlando area or are vacationing in Florida, please stop in and show your support.
