Real Rehab + Physical Therapy is proud to be a lead sponsor of the 2018 Cycle and Walk the WAVE, The WAVE Foundation’s signature event.
We, at Real Rehab, support and believe in the objective of the Wave Foundation. As their educational program assists individuals to “Discover their Power” against violence, our mission at Real Rehab is to empower our clients to reach their full potential. That is why we are joining forces with the Wave Foundation to promote their primary fundraising event, the Cycle/Walk the Wave on Sunday, September 16, 2018.
The WAVE Foundation is working to increase awareness of the societal impact of sexual assault and domestic violence through their educational and empowerment program, Discover Your Power. Although primarily focused on the youth and young adult populations, the program serves to educate and empower all members of the community on recognizing the warning signs of violence and how to prevent its occurrence.
Real Rehab will be providing WAVE participants with monthly biking, walking and general wellness tips in order to keep you moving forward in meeting your training goals and completing the event of your choice. If you are a cyclist and sign up on or before March 31st you will receive a 15% discount off a 2-hour Bike Fit performed by a physical therapist at Real Rehab. Participants (or just cyclists?) who registered after March 31st will receive a 10% discount on all Wellness and Performance services offered by Real Rehab. Look for updates in the months to come about WAVE/Real Rehab events and activities and how you can participate!

Each year The WAVE Foundation relies on the support of dozens of local businesses in order to produce top quality events.
This holiday month we are featuring one of our long time Cycle & Walk the WAVE supporters, Wendy Scheel of the
Wendy Scheel has been an owner and baker at Great Harvest for the past 37 years, beginning in Redmond and then at her store in Bellevue/Factoria for the past 20 years. Her daughter Courtney is also a big part of the team that makes GH Bellevue so special. They sincerely enjoy giving back to the community by donating fresh, wholesome baked goods for many worthwhile events in the region, including Cycle & Walk the WAVE. “The WAVE Foundation’s mission is so vital, and so very important to the community” states Wendy. In the past several years WAVE participants have been able to sample their fabulous baked rolls and cookies at the Spiritridge Park rest stop.
What makes Great Harvest bread so delicious, so tasty and so very, very addictive you may wonder? It’s all in the flour as each Great Harvest location Stone grinds Montana whole wheat flour onsite at the bakery; adding only pure and wholesome ingredients to each item they create. This past Thanksgiving week Great Harvest sold 3000 packs of dinner rolls alone…so if you want to pick up their signature Cinnamon Chip Christmas tree or legendary German style Stollen Bread, get your orders in soon!
Special Thanks to Wendy and our many other valued food sponsors who help us serve up the best ride support food in the region.
Elaine Denslow Sheds Light on Financial Side of Domestic Violence
“It’s unacceptable!” said Seattle native and local business owner, Elaine Denslow. This is how she feels about the statistic that one in four women will be affected by domestic violence in her lifetime.
Elaine, the owner of The Denslow Agency for more than 20 years in Bellevue, is excited to turn her sentiment into concrete action during the tenth anniversary of Cycle the WAVE on Sept. 17.
You will find a #PurplePurse tassel in your goody bag. This clip-on tassel symbolizes your support for a world free of domestic violence. The reference to a purse or wallet is intentional: financial abuse occurs in 99% cases of domestic violence.
Elaine and fellow Good Hands volunteers will be hosting The Allstate Foundation booth at the finish line festival. Come and visit the booth so you can:
- Write an encouragement card to a domestic violence survivor. These cards will be placed on beds in shelters (samples will be available for those looking for assistance with wordsmithing).
- Try your skill at corn hole! Toss the bean bags and if you show either skill or spirit, you are likely to win a prize!
“Camaraderie and community are both powerful, and they’re both antidotes to the isolation that often accompanies domestic violence,” said Elaine when asked what compelled her to get involved with Cycle the WAVE. Elaine is also a member of the Allstate Against Abuse Team – a growing network of Allstate professionals using education and volunteerism to end the cycle of domestic violence, one survivor at a time.
Look for Elaine at The Allstate Foundation booth on the 17th – she’ll be wearing a purple purse lapel pin. We recommend asking Elaine about what purple wardrobe items she owns to show her support for domestic violence awareness. One is sporty and the other is decidedly fancy!
The Allstate Foundation Purple Purse is the longest running national campaign focused on ending domestic violence through financial empowerment. In the state of Washington in 2016, The Allstate Foundation’s investment in domestic violence support was $183,000.
