April 11, 2016



On Saturday, October 1st, Virginia Spine Institute will once again team up with Spinal Research Foundation (a national 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization) to present the 9th annual We’ve Got Your Back Race for Spinal Health! The We’ve Got Your Back national race series is a celebration of Spinal Champions, or those who have overcome debilitating spinal health issues through successful treatments, hard work, and determination. This event historically draws thousands of participates, hundreds of whom are celebrated Spinal Champions including NFL players, professional athletes, and Olympians. The race series raises nearly $200,000 annually to provide life-changing research, education and patient advocacy for those suffering from neck or back pain. Each event consists of a timed 5K race, a 1 mile family-friendly run/walk, and a VIP Spinal Champion experience to celebrate their accomplishments.

Schuler, M.D., F.A.C.S, founder and president of SRF. “Our national research network is rapidly expanding from coast to coast with Regional Research Partners hosting 5K events in their cities. The vision for this national race series is to raise awareness of modern spinal treatments, inspire individuals to establish goals to improve their health, and to raise funds for further research.”

This year’s We’ve Got Your Back Race for Spinal Health will once again be held at Virginia Spine Institute located in Reston, VA.  Grab your family and friends and team up with your doctor to celebrate this annual tradition!
