Sports Rehab & Physical Therapy was a proud platinum sponsor of the 2018 Dancing for the Stars competition held November 29th, 2018. Dancing for the Stars is an event that benefits the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Erath County. We are proud to support our own Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA), Cayla Limas and her husband Abel in this competition.
Big Brothers Big Sisters is an organization that provides a mentoring program for local youth to promote success in a child’s life. Matches are made between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children ages 6 through 18 (“Littles”). These relationships have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people. Though Cayla nor Abel have been Bigs or Littles themselves, Cayla’s Aunt Sharon was a Big Sister for 3 years. Sharon spoke fondly of the program stating, “I very much enjoyed taking my Little Sister to do fun things. We were able to get together once a week.”
Physical Therapist Assistant, Cayla Limas, and her husband Abel Limas have been practicing their dance routine and raising money for this charity since the beginning of 2018. All the proceeds raised from this event benefits the community at a local level in Erath County. Cayla stated, “it was a pleasant surprise to see how the community was very giving when it came to a charity event.”
When asked what the best part of joining the competition has been, Cayla said, “getting out of our comfort zone both individually and as a couple. As a couple we have had to learn to trust each other with the very complicated lifts and dance stunts we were asked to do.” The couple has enjoyed learning the choreography from former Stephenville High School dance coach, Sherri Evans.
When we asked Cayla to give some advice for others wanting to participate she stated, “be organized outgoing and have fun!” She continued to comment on not being afraid to talk to people about donating to this organization, and to also make sure that they have a good understanding of what the money is going towards. Lastly Cayla stated, “Have fun! Yes, this is a competition but remember it’s for a good cause and all of your hard work will help provide funds for a great organization that provides a positive impact on children.”
Thank you Cayla and Abel for allowing us to be your sponsor in Dancing for the Stars, we were excited to support such a great organization!
