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.
COVID-Related Changes for a Decades-Long Tradition
Over the past 30 years, more than 300 schools and thousands of PT and PTA students have participated in the Marquette Challenge, raising more than $4.3 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. Though this year will be different, we’ll get through this and we’ll do it together.
