Students Give Forward to the Physical Therapy Profession

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.

Top 5 Schools Announced for “A Challenge Like No Other”

Since 1989, more than 300 schools and thousands of PT and PTA students have participated in the Marquette Challenge, raising more than $4.5 million for research. The Foundation for Physical Therapy Research depends on these funds to award grants, scholarships, and fellowships. Today, our student fundraisers are more important to our mission than ever.

Thank you, students, for moving forward to raise funds for research through virtual events, online fundraisers, and other creative ways to connect with research. Every dollar raised through the Marquette Challenge helps us carry our our mission.
