#CPChatNow Recap- 10-4-2017

This past week was an exciting week in #CPChatNow as Zach welcomed a nephew, #CPChatNow welcomed new members, and members discussed using a cane and stretching.  This is #CPChatNow Co-Host, Devin Axtman, taking you along on this week’s recap.

However, in a bit of Breaking News outside of the chat, our #CPChatNow Co-Host, Zachary Fenell, finished his marathon on Sunday.  Kudos to Zach for following a dream and having the courage to see it through!

Rachel’s Tweet brings us to our Extend-The-Conversation Question: What “awards” do you feel you should win from having CP? My award? The Straightest Legs in My Youth Gymnastics Class (I couldn’t bend them).

  1. Thanks for mentioning my marathon results in the recap Devin! To answer the extend-the-conversation question I would like to think I’m a candidate for a “CP Community Uniter” award thanks to my commitment to #CPChatNow from its beginning nearly four years ago. It’s been an honor to coordinate alongside you, Blake and from the beginning days John and Tim.
