THANK YOU FOR HELPING US CELEBRATE THE IPTA'S 70 ANNIVERSARY AND SUPPORT THE IPTF'S NEW MINORITY SCHOLARSHIP!
We had great participation in our 70 Miles for 70 Years! Run, Walk, or Roll Fundraiser.
We raised enough funds to purchase a paver to honor our 27 past IPTA Presidents as well as raise over $700 for the new IPTF Minority Scholarship. Registration to participate in the run is closed, but it is never too late to support the Minority Scholarship.
