Introducing PUSH Yourself!       

The PUSH Yourself! philosophy is designed to motivate people with disabilities into action. Nothing happens unless you make it happen and we all have the potential to make things happen in our lives. Yes, there will be down days and struggles but we can’t let these get in the way of what we want to accomplish. Turn your OW’s to WOW’s, your SNIFF’s to RAR’s!

PUSH Yourself! Stands for…

Potential – What can you make happen?
Urge – We all want to accomplish something, don’t we?
Stamina – Accomplishment is hard work. Are you ready?
Hurdles – We can’t avoid them – how do we deal with them?
