Sports powerhouses James R. Andrews,M.D., Athletes’ Performance & HydroWorx join forces to raise money for the Eagle Fund.
The Eagle Fund, a designated fund within the Andrews Institute Foundation, enables wounded warriors to rehabilitate at the Andrews Institute for Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine and Athletes’ Performance using proven technologies including water therapy and conditioning on a revolutionary HydroWorx 2000 Series pool with adjustable underwater treadmill floor depth.
Barrier Reef Pools was a sponsor of the first organized Underwater Marathon hosted by Athletes’ Performance, the Andrews Institute and HydroWorx to raise funds to benefit the Eagle Fund which took place on Sunday, Sept. 9, 2012 at Troegs Brewery in Hershey, PA.
Athletes’ Performance, the industry leader of integrated performance training for the world’s elite athletes, works hand-in-hand with the Andrews Institute, the leaders in orthopaedics and sports medicine, to create an individualized and comprehensive “Intensive Restoration Therapy” program for each Eagle Fund recipient. The integrated training system incorporates performance training, nutrition, and physical therapy. As one Eagle Fund enrollee noted, “When I thought it was over and didn’t really know what to do, my family at Athletes’ Performance gave me hope to continue to do what I’ve been called to do.”
