We’ve Got Your Back Race/Walk


Spinal Research Foundation event on February 8 raises awareness of spinal health and contributes to life-changing research and educational programs


February 5, 2014 – Ditch the Belly is proud to sponsor the 1st Annual We’ve Got Your Back Race for Spinal Health, the signature awareness and fundraising event of the Spinal Research Foundation (SRF).


The Race will be held on Saturday, February 8, 2014 in Scottsdale AZ. It is an occasion to celebrate “Spinal Champions” who have overcome back and neck pain and are no longer suffering.


Funds raised at the event contribute directly to life-changing research and educational programs conducted by SRF.


“More than 90 percent of the population will suffer from severe neck and/or low back pain during their lifetime,” said Thomas C. Schuler, MD, president of the Spinal Research Foundation. “Approximately 10 percent of these people develop chronic pain, which means that at any given time, 35 million people in the United States are directly affected by disabling pain and many more indirectly.”


Grab your friends and join us for a fun 5k run or a 1-mile fun run on Saturday, February 8, 2014 in Scottsdale. Sign up today at:  WeveGotYourBackRACE.org.


Amy Nelson, Ditch the Belly co-founder added, “As someone who has suffered from severe scoliosis back pain, I’m extremely excited we are sponsoring this event.  Helping people manage pain through exercise and nutrition is a big part of Ditch the Belly’s mission and I’m excited to work with current and future “Spinal Champions” to reach their health and fitness goals”.
