For SCI-FIT founder, Dan Dumas, he never envisioned how his life will change on that day on June 3, 2005 when while vacationing in Hawaii, he suffered a C-5 spinal cord injury as he was hit and thrown by a wave.
While his doctors and therapists didn't give him any hope of ever walking again, he refused to believe that and embarked upon an intensive multi-month physical therapy program that eventually led to him walking with crutches. That experience motivated him to open SCI-FIT in Pleasanton 10 years ago and on Sat., Sept. 9th, there will be a celebration taking place from 3-7 p.m. at their facility with free food, drinks and music.
The event is open to the SCI community including family and friends. SCI-FIT is located at 3283 Bernal Ave., suite 105 in Pleasanton.
