2014 Jim Thorpe Courage Awards Gala Raises a Record Breaking $1.1 Million

OKLAHOMA CITY (Aug. 25, 2014) – The INTEGRIS Jim Thorpe Rehabilitation Courage Awards Gala, held at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum on Friday, Aug. 22, raised a record-breaking $1.1 million to support the center’s many rehabilitation programs.

The donations will be used to provide the services and equipment necessary for patients recovering from stroke; brain injury, spinal cord injury; orthopedic injuries and conditions; limb loss; neuromuscular conditions; cardiac conditions and pulmonary conditions.

An impressive $211,000 was dedicated solely for the renovation of specialized brain injury rooms designed to maximize improvement and healing.

The sixth annual event hosted more than 900 guests and honored three local Courage Award winners for displaying exceptional bravery and grace through adversity.

Billy Wynne, the sole survivor of an EagleMed helicopter crash in Oklahoma City; Matt Grice, the Oklahoma City police officer who suffered a traumatic brain injury after being rear-ended by a car while sitting at a stop light; and EH Pittman, the 7-Eleven employee working on May 20 when an EF5 tornado hit the store.

Al Moorad, M.D., the medical director of INTEGRIS Jim Thorpe Rehabilitation, announced at the gala that he would be retiring as medical director Dec. 31. He will maintain his private practice. Moorad began the rehabilitation program at INTEGRIS in 1985. It has been his life’s work to offer Oklahomans the best rehabilitation programs possible. Through his efforts, INTEGRIS Jim Thorpe Rehabilitation has grown to become a nationally respected and recognized rehabilitation facility.

Brent Tipton, M.D., will be Moorad’s successor. Tipton has 21 years of experience as a board certified physical medicine and rehabilitation physician. He has been with INTEGRIS Jim Thorpe Rehabilitation as an associate medical director since 1996. He will begin transitioning into his new role Oct. 1.

First of all I would like to say great blog! I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you do not mind.
I was interested to find out how you center yourself and
clear your mind before writing. I have had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my
thoughts out. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like
the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost just
trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Many
