NORTHEASTERN REHABILITATION ASSOCIATES, PC PROUD TO SPONSOR WNEP’S RYAN’S RUN 9

Northeastern Rehabilitation Associates, PC (NERA) recently presented Allied Services Integrated Health System with a check for $15,000, their contribution to the 2018 WNEP’s Ryan’s Run campaign. As 9-year sponsors of the fundraising and awareness raising campaign led by WNEP TV’s Ryan Leckey, NERA has donated more than $135,000 to Allied Services.

Funds raised through the annual charity campaign enable the non-profit health system to invest in advanced rehab technology and services to support the rehabilitation of children and adults with disabilities, life-changing injuries and illnesses. A portion of the proceeds from this year’s campaign are being earmarked for the Indego, an exoskeleton recently FDA-approved for use with patients learning to walk following a stroke. Indego is a powered lower limb exoskeleton enabling people with spinal cord injuries, and now stroke, to walk and participate in gait training.

On November 4, WNEP TV’s Ryan Leckey and 49 other area runners will complete the 2018 TCS New York City Marathon. The legendary footrace marks the culmination of WNEP’s Ryan’s Run campaign and months of fundraising and awareness-raising for Allied Services. NERA is represented in the marathon by Michael Merenich, a long time NERA employee. NERA’s employees and customers have supported the campaign through dress-downs days and other activities.
