Students Give Forward

Since 1989, future PTs and PTAs have raised more than $4.6 million for physical therapy research.

The Marquette Challenge is a grassroots, student-led fundraising effort that supports the mission of the Foundation for Physical Therapy Research (FPTR). Each year, hundreds of physical therapist (PT) and physical therapist assistant (PTA) students, with the support of their program directors and community, hold fundraising events across the United States. These fundraisers make FPTR grants, scholarships, and fellowships possible

Congratulations to Our 2022-2023 Schools

Congratulations, Virginia Commonwealth University! VCU once again took home top honors in the Challenge, earning co-naming rights for the 2023-2024 Challenge. Many thanks to all 79 PT and PTA programs that participated. We couldn’t carry out our mission without you!
