PJ Canterbury, an Associate Director of Client Services in Century Group’s Glendale Office, is representing Century Group at StepUp for NextStep – Conquer the Rose Bowl, a charity event on Saturday, April 22 that encourages participants to “move for others” and support those fighting for mobility every day.
The first of its kind event at the Rose Bowl benefits NextStep, an internationally-recognized non-profit organization helping those living with paralysis. Everyone is welcome to participate in the charity stair-climb – there are options for all fitness levels, from beginner to advanced athletes, as well as a family-fun circuit, kids’ circuit and wheelchair racing. Participants and spectators are also invited to enjoy the beer garden and food trucks that day.
PJ learned about the event through his involvement with AthletesTouch, an organization that provides networking opportunities to former college and professional athletes. “I’m proud to take part in this inaugural event supporting such a worthy cause,” he said. “It’s also a great opportunity for anyone who has ever wanted to be on the field at the Rose Bowl!”
NextStep was launched in Los Angeles in 2008 with the belief that all people living with disabilities deserve to live long and healthy lives. The organization’s mission centers around making life-changing rehab accessible and affordable to those living with paralysis and physical disabilities. This includes establishing recovery centers across the country to ensure an improved quality of life and a continuum of care for this underserved population. NextStep is a proud member of the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation NeuroRecovery Network® (NRN), a network of rehabilitation centers that develop and provide therapy to promote functional recovery and improve the health of people living with paralysis.
