September 28, 2024 | Check in: 8 am Race: 9-11 am
Danada Forest Preserve 3S580 Naperville Road Wheaton, IL 60189
September 23rd was a great day for a 5K. We had an outstanding 105 participate both in person and virtually. We had 15 amazing sponsors, 3 sponsor booths at the event, swag bags, and several volunteers. All together, we raised enough to fund the 2024 IPTF DEI scholarships and the IPTF Student Emergency Assistance Fund.
We also had an awesome shoe collection for the IPTF Got Sneakers fundraiser for PT Access, our pro bono physical therapy program. Many thanks to all who brought shoes.
Please mark your calendars for the 4rd Annual 5K set for September 28, 2024 at the Danada Forest Preserve, (3S580 Naperville Rd, Wheaton, IL 60189) from 9-11 am, as well as being a virtual event! All net proceeds will again help fund the IPTF DEI Scholarship , the Student Emergency Assistance Fund, and other student funding initiatives.
Sponsorship opportunities will open April 1, 2024. Participant registration will open June 10, 2024. We hope to see you next September joining us as we run, walk, and roll for physical therapy!
Looking ahead to 2024: LET'S INSPIRE OUR PATIENTS TO JOIN THIS! We are opening registration for clinician/patient teams. Inspire a patient to compete with you. Teams will predict their completion time the day of the event and whichever team is closest to their predicted time will win the event. This allows anyone to participate--no matter their physical ability.
Got Sneakers? Please save and bring your old athletic shoes the day of the IPTF 5K. We are collecting old athletic shoes to recycle through the "Got Sneakers" program. All proceeds will help fund our PT Access pro bono physical therapy program. Good for the earth and good for providing access to physical therapy for our uninsured residents.
