PT students at MGH Institute of Health Professions recently recorded a video of their experience using JustGiving for the student-led Marquette Challenge. These creative future PTs used JustGiving for their holiday movie and ornament decorating event, Superbowl square fundraiser, March Madness Bracket Challenge, and virtual 5k. Just Giving is a crowdfunding site that you can personalize for your fundraiser or event. Click here for the toolkit that can help you get started.
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.
