“Dear Micki, I am blown away by the videos of Pete. Jim said he stood for 20 minutes, which is unprecedented. You and Anthony have taken what has happened in your life and reached out to help others. This is more than miraculous. This week I have walked 70 miles of the Camino in Spain. It is a medieval pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela. I have thought and prayed for you and Anthony as I walked, asking that the desires of your hearts be heard. Thank you for all you have done for my family. The connection we share with you and Anthony will always be a strong one. Much love, Jane”
Peter Brady dove into the shallow end of a friend’s pool on Memorial Day 2012. Paralyzed from the neck down, Peter suffered an incomplete spinal cord injury at the C3-C4 level of his vertebrae. An avid athlete prior to the accident, Peter played with the Eden Volleyball Club and had recently finished his freshman year at the University of Pittsburgh. In November, 2013, his fraternity brothers at the Pennsylvania Iota Chapter of Phi Delta Theta hosted an inaugural “Phiathalon”, a philanthropic event designed to raise money for their brother Peter Brady. In February of 2014, Peter became the owner of an FES (Functional Electrical Stimulation) bike due to their creative fundraising efforts and has been able to advance in his recovery.
Ready to take his rehabilitation further, Walking With Anthony awarded Peter the opportunity to go to Strides SCI in San Juan Capistrano to get deeper into his recovery. Congratulations Peter for the faith in SCI Recovery! We are in your corner!!
