January 28, 2011 — The Foundation for Chiropractic Progress welcomed a record 231 new individual monthly contributors along with several new vendor progress partners — generating an additional $100,000 in annual support — during the recent 2011 Parker Vegas Seminars.
The foundation headliners, which included Jerry Rice, pro-football Hall-of-Famer; members of the Washington Redskins Cheerleading team; and retired Brigadier General Becky Halstead, sparked the interest, attention, and enthusiasm of the entire audience.
“The excitement surrounding our presence and success at Parker Vegas was fantastic, and further confirmation that the foundation is gaining significant momentum for the profession,” says Kent S. Greenawalt, chairman, Foundation for Chiropractic Progress, pointing to a positive 2010 press campaign that generated more than one billion messages. “We are grateful for the groundswell of support from members and vendors, and come away from this event with an even greater commitment to accelerating our growth. Imagine what we can accomplish as our numbers and financial support expand even further!”
