Disaboom Sponsors 3,861 Mile "Ride for Rehab"

DENVER, CO--(Marketwire - June 11, 2007) - Disaboom, Inc. (OTCBB: DSBO), which is developing the first online community for people living with or directly affected by disabilities or functional limitations, today announced its participation as the platinum corporate sponsor of "Ride for Rehab," kicking off in San Francisco tomorrow morning.

Dr. Joel Press, President of the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (AAPM&R) and Medical Director of the Spine & Sports Rehabilitation Centers at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC), will embark on a demanding physical adventure across the country to raise awareness about physiatry and funding for rehabilitation research. He will be accompanied in California by Dr. Jerome Schofferman, a pain management specialist from Daly City, and members of the Thrive Team from Vallejo Medical Center/Kaiser Foundation Rehabilitation Center.

An avid cyclist, Dr. Press will complete his Ride for Rehab, a 3,861 mile cross-country bike ride from San Francisco to Boston, in ten weeks. Dr. Press will cycle across the U.S. participating in local events, fundraisers and visiting rehabilitation centers to speak on a variety of topics. As he turns 50 in the coming year and joins the more than 76 million aging baby boomers, Dr. Press hopes to get more people talking about the critical role physiatry and rehabilitation play in restoring function and improving quality of life for patients.

"We are proud to support the efforts of Dr. Press in raising awareness of physiatry, or rehabilitation medicine, which is also a key area of focus for the disaboom community," said J.W. Roth, Chairman and CEO of Disaboom. "We commend him for his dedication to this important cause and wish him the best of luck on his journey."

The Foundation for Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation is committed to developing programs that enhance the quality of life for rehabilitation patients. All Ride for Rehab proceeds will go directly to the Foundation for Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (affiliated with the AAPM&R) and RIC. During Dr. Press's 10-week Ride for Rehab, interested parties can log onto www.aapmr.org to learn more about the issue or www.ric.org to find out where he is along his cycling route. Donations can be directed to rehabilitation research by logging on to www.foundationforpmr.org.
