This year, I’m part of a team that is taking part in the VCU-Marquette Challenge. I’m writing to you today because I need help reaching my goal.
The VCU-Marquette Challenge is a grassroots, student-led fundraising effort that raises money for the Foundation for Physical Therapy Research – the only national nonprofit solely dedicated to funding physical therapy research and new researchers. Research helps improve the physical therapy profession and show the value of physical therapy services.
I’m participating in the VCU-Marquette Challenge because I care about the future of the profession and the patients whose lives are made better by physical therapy. Every donation makes it possible to fund scholarships, fellowships, and research grants. We’re investing in the future of physical therapy!
Please help me reach my goal with a $20 gift. Visit MarquetteChallenge.com to make a donation. Don’t forget to select my school so that we’ll receive credit for the gift!
Thank you so much for making a contribution towards my goal for the VCU-Marquette Challenge. It really means a lot to me that you stepped up to support the future of the physical therapy profession.
The Foundation for Physical Therapy Research’s next steps will be to apply your gift towards finding the best qualified researchers and support their work. To learn more about the impact your donation has, visit www.Foundation4pt.org.
My school is taking part in the 2022-2023 VCU-Marquette Challenge! Each year, hundreds of physical therapy and physical therapy assistant students hold events across the U.S. to invest in our future profession. Donations will go to the Foundation for Physical Therapy Research – the only national nonprofit solely dedicated to supporting physical therapy research and new researchers. Help me reach my goal at MarquetteChallenge.com.
Every donation for @Challenge4pt – big or small – makes it possible to fund @Foundation4PT scholarships, fellowships and research grants. Help me reach my VCU-Marquette Challenge goal at MarquetteChallenge.com.
Since 1989, the Marquette Challenge has raised more than $4.8 million for #physicaltherapy research. This year I’m making my contribution by raising money for @Challenge4PT. Show your support at MarquetteChallenge.com.
Each year, hundreds of physical therapists (PT) and physical therapist assistant (PTA) students, with the support of their program directors and community, hold fundraisers across the U.S. Through this grassroots, student-led effort, more than $4.6 million dollars have been raised for the Foundation for Physical Therapy Research – the only national nonprofit solely dedicated to supporting physical therapy research and new researchers.
When students participate in the VCU-Marquette Challenge they make an investment that strengthens their future profession. Every donation, big or small, makes it possible to fund scholarships, fellowships, and research grants.
The Foundation’s unique focus is physical therapy research. Using a grant and scholarship review process modeled after the National Institutes of Health, applicants are reviewed by a volunteer scientific review committee. Through this process, the Foundation identifies the best qualified applicants who go on to enrich the physical therapy profession with evidence and validate the value of physical therapy services.
Many of today’s leading physical therapy researchers, clinicians, and academicians began their careers with support from the Foundation.
This work is important to me because I know physical therapy helps create a more mobile future for many people in need and I know research is an investment in this profession.

Safety: The health and safety of our student fundraisers, our communities, and event attendees is of the greatest importance. Be sure to follow local guidance and regulations for safety. Many schools have held successful virtual fundraisers such as virtual 5ks and virtual lecture series.
Restrictions: The Foundation does have a third-party fundraising policy. While the Foundation is the recipient of donations raised through third-party fundraising events, the Foundation does not host the events and is not responsible for costs associated with the events or for obtaining necessary permits, licenses, and insurance for required events. In naming the event or promotion, the Foundation can be listed as the beneficiary of an event. For example, organizers may not refer to the event as the Foundation Bowl-a-Thon; instead, the event could be promoted as the Bowl-a-Thon to benefit the Foundation. For the full text of the third-party fundraising policies, visit the Challenge FAQ’s page. Additionally, regulations governing raffles and auctions vary from state to state. Please check with your State Attorney General’s office for local regulations
