Last year, the 2018-2019 Pitt-Marquette Challenge raised more than $266,000 for physical therapy research. This year, a new group of student coordinators is already hard at work to promote the 2019-2020 VCU-Marquette Challenge. The students exhibited during APTA NSC in Albuquerque. They hope to recruit more PT and PTA programs for “the List” of participating schools. For more than 30 years, students across the United States have raised money for physical therapy research. In addition to raising more funds for FPTR than any other single activity, the Challenge connects students with research in a meaningful way.
The Foundation once again partnered with PT Pubnight for the Challenge kickoff. This year’s event was held on the Sky Deck of Marble Brewery in downtown Albuquerque.
