We're joining forces with the St. Luke's Foundation to raise money for
St. Luke's Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation.

St. Luke's Helped our Co-Founder Walk Again

Nearly 3 years ago, Bill, co-founder of Alex + Abby, suffered a massive stroke. Doctors told him he was lucky to have survived, but the stroke left him in pretty bad shape. Before the stroke, Bill was fit, active and very social. He was an avid cyclist who routinely rode 50 miles in a day. But after the stroke he couldn’t walk or talk.

Bill faced a long road to recovery. It was crucial to begin rehab right away. So his family searched for the specialized therapy he required and discovered St. Luke’s Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation (PM&R) fit Bill’s needs - plus it was right here in Iowa.

Bill went through acute stroke rehab at St. Luke’s PM&R where he received physical, occupational and speech therapy for several hours each day with 24-hour care. Afterward, he continued recovery with months of outpatient therapy. Thanks to the skill and care of therapists, doctors and nurses at St. Luke’s PM&R as well as Bill’s hard work and tenacity, he regained the ability to walk. We celebrate his accomplishments! He's now enjoying retirement.

You Can Make It Easier for Others to Walk Again

We watched as Bill struggled on his path to recovery. We saw just how challenging it can be to relearn to walk. So when we heard St Luke’s PM&R was seeking funding for new innovative therapy aimed at assisting others with difficulty walking due to stroke, spinal cord injury or neurologic conditions, we wanted to help. You can help too.

The St. Luke's Foundation is raising money for aquatic therapy equipment. This innovative therapy involves a specialized treadmill submerged in an accessible, freestanding tank of water. Water buoyancy supports the patient’s bodyweight making it possible for them to safely stand and walk despite muscle weakness and diminished motor skills. Water resistance can also be used to strengthen weak muscles.

For a limited time, purchase Alex + Abby activewear and we’ll donate a portion of the proceeds to the St Luke’s Foundation.

Stroke / Brain Injury Can Happen to Anyone.
It Happened to Someone We Know.

Join Us in Supporting PM&R

According to the American Stroke Organization, stroke is a leading cause of disability in the U.S. As in Bill’s case, stroke often happens without warning. And stroke, brain injury, spinal cord injury or neurologic issues can happen unexpectedly to anyone regardless of age – to you, a family member, a friend, or a neighbor. When it happens, access to the latest therapy innovations can make a significant difference in recovery. And having those innovations available in a rehabilitation facility close to home, like St. Luke's PM&R, makes it easier for both patients and families.

About Alex + Abby

We're no strangers to the world of active apparel. Before starting our own brand, we were the brains behind the scenes, designing and making top-notch gear for big sports brands, pro leagues, colleges, and even legendary athletes. Chances are, you've worn our clothing without even knowing it. And guess what? We've been quietly doing it all from right here in Cedar Rapids.

But here's the thing: we got tired of athletic wear that only seemed to fit hardcore athletes, styles that looked out of place anywhere other than the gym, and those unisex tshirts and sweatshirts that didn't do justice to women's curves. So, we decided to put our experience to work and create versatile, performance-driven clothing for active women. At Alex + Abby we're all about making you look and feel awesome while you stay active.
