Disability Awareness Month: 2011 Honoree
Wednesday, October 5, 2011
Bill Bodry is the founder and president of the Challenge Center, which he established after a spinal cord injury left him paraplegic at the age of 27. Faced with the challenge of finding affordable medical and physical therapy services, Mr. Bodry has made it his life's work and mission to provide programs and services to people living with severe disabilities. Since 1987, the Challenge Center has provided clinical rehabilitation and health education by physical therapists to those living with a disease that has significantly impacted their level of function. The Challenge Center has been recognized as one of the fifteen "Best of the Best" nonprofit rehabilitation facilities in the nation by the Christopher Reeves Foundation. In 2010, Mr. Bodry received San Diego’s ABC/Channel 10 News Leadership Award.
