Changes in Las Vegas - New Management!
Project Walk announces that its Las Vegas location is now under new management. Effective this July our Las Vegas team will join our network of Project Walk locations that includes San Diego, Los Angeles, and the Bay Area. This means increased support from our Headquarters team.

To help with this transition we have also promoted Samantha Okumura into the role of Facility Coordinator. Samantha has been with Project Walk since 2014 when she started as a Recovery Specialists at our Bay Area location. Since then she has completed her Level I certification and relocated to Las Vegas in the fall of 2015. Since joining that team she has provided a lot of stability and leadership to the staff and clients. We look forward to her increased role and presence in the Las Vegas community.

Jeff Roch rolls his wheelchair over to the standing frame inside Project Walk while one of the specialists adjusts the machine.
 
The equipment straightens Roch’s legs and provides him support throughout the workout. It’s time for another two-hour session to help put him on the path to potentially walking again.
 
“This always gets me sweating,” Roch says.
 
Roch was in a motorcycle accident 14 years ago that damaged his spinal cord and left him paralyzed from the waist down. He woke up from a medically induced coma to hear the bad news.
