HELP US CELEBRATE THE IPTA'S 70 ANNIVERSARY AND SUPPORT THE IPTF'S NEW MINORITY SCHOLARSHIP!

70 Miles for 70 Years! Run, Walk or Roll Fundraiser To celebrate IPTA’s 70th Anniversary, we’re hosting a virtual event doing what physical therapist do best… get people moving! Join us to commemorate our 70 years with a 70 mile run, walk or roll. Proceeds from this event will allow us to honor our Past Presidents in our Legacy Walk at the IPTA Chapter Office in Naperville. Each Past President will be honored with a brick paver in the pathway, as a show of gratitude for their leadership in bringing our profession forward. We’ve come a long way! Once we have reached the initial fundraising goal of $675 to cover the brick installation, all additional donations will go towards supporting the newly established IPTF Minority Scholarship. It’s a win-win! The IPTF is a 501(c)3 and all donations are 100% tax deductible. All it takes is a one-time minimal donation of $20 to participate. If you donate $30 or more, you qualify for a FREE participation t-shirt! Upon processing donations of $30 or greater, staff will email you the link to order your t-shirt - and it will be delivered straight to your home.
