NPCO Recruiting Race Team for 2010 Chicago Marathon

The Non-Profit Chiropractic Organization (NPCO), which fielded a race team 82 members strong at the 2009 Chicago Marathon, is looking for even greater participation this year at two Chicago events:

the Chicago Half-Marathon on Sept. 12 and the full marathon on Oct. 10. Registration is underway and according to the NPCO, race spots are limited.

Participation is not limited to doctors of chiropractic; last year, the team included doctors, patients and others running with a common vision: to promote chiropractic and raise money for the NPCO. All team members receive a personalized donation Web site, among other benefits (race T-shirt, weekly support, training program), with an overall team donation goal this year of $100,000. The NPCO will use all funds raised to open nonprofit clinics in Third World countries and educate their local communities about the benefits of chiropractic.

To learn more, visit and read "Running With a Message and a Purpose" in the Dec. 16, 2009 issue of Dynamic Chiropractic (News in Brief section).

Appreciating the Beauty of Chiropractic Diversity

Doctors of chiropractic representing three traditionally divergent practice philosophies - Dr. Reed Phillips (broad scope), Dr. Ashley Cleveland (middle scope) and Dr. Gerard Clum (focused scope) - have authored feature chapters in Chiropractic Peace, a book that editor William McDonald, DC, MSEd, says "stresses pluralism - not compromise forged at a bargaining table - as the key for achieving concord within the profession."

"If we were to openly acknowledge a range of ideas and practices associated with chiropractic, and we were to do so with the understanding that honorable people can have honorable disagreements, would we not be better served?" writes Dr. Clum, perhaps best capturing the spirit of the book. "More importantly, would such a perspective not better serve our patients?"

Tell Your Chiropractic Story

Parker Seminars is encouraging doctors of chiropractic to submit true chiropractic-related short stories (1,000 words or less) written for chiropractic patients and prospective patients. Winning stories will be published in Back to Health and Wellness: Feel-Good Stories From the Heart of Chiropractic, scheduled to be published later this year. The stated goal of the project is to "enhance the professional image of chiropractic and the contributing chiropractor while encouraging people to recognize the wisdom of having regular chiropractic care and pursuing a complete wellness lifestyle."

Submit your story electronically (preferably in Microsoft Word format) to Don Dible (author/editor/publisher of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, among other works) at . Submissions can also be sent by regular mail to Don Dible, Series Editor, DMD House, 29925 Rose Blossom Drive, Murrieta, CA 92563.

Besides having your story in print, you also could win copies of the book to distribute to patients and others: 200 copies for the grand-prize winner, 80 copies for second prize, and 40 copies for third prize. Remaining contest winners will receive five copies each.
