Magee Rehabilitation Hospital, a US News&World Report best physical and cognitive rehabilitation hospital, is partnering with the foundation of former patient and Penn State Alum Adam Taliaferro for a golf outing October 3, 2011 at the Green Valley Country Club in Lafayette Hill, Pa.

Although this is the first joint-fundraising endeavor between the world renowned Magee Rehabilitation Hospital and the Adam Taliaferro Foundationwhich provides emotional, financial and educational support to student athletes who suffer catastrophic head or spinal cord injuries in sanctioned team events in New Jersey, Pennsylvania or Delawareחit certainly isnt the beginning of the relationship.

Taliaferro was a patient at Magee back in 2000 when Taliaferro, a freshman cornerback for Penn State, received a spinal cord injury while making a clean hit in a game against Ohio State. Told he may never walk again, after 3 grueling months of therapy at Magee, and with the unyielding support of his family, Taliaferro walked out of Magee on his own, shifted his focus and talents away from the football field and graduated from Penn State, went to law school and became a lawyer҅
all while starting the Adam Taliaferro Foundation to help those who, like him, had been injured in a sanctioned sporting event.

Proceeds from the golf outingŗwhich includes golf, dinner, cocktails and auctionswill benefit spinal cord injury research, rehabilitation, and quality of life programs supported by both the Adam Taliaferro Foundation and Magee Rehabilitation Hospital.

To participate in the golf outing or to obtain more information, please contact the Magee Development Office at (215) 587-3090 or email jflynn@mageerehab.org or Gus Ostrum at the Adam Taliaferro Foundation at (609) 502-0424 or email ostrumg@yahoo.com.
