purchase a paver on the legacy walk at IPTA chapter office
THANK YOU FOR HELPING US CELEBRATE THE IPTA'S 70 ANNIVERSARY AND SUPPORT THE IPTF'S NEW DEI SCHOLARSHIP!
In celebrating IPTA's 70th Anniversary, we honored each of our past IPTA Presidents with a paver. These pavers were purchased through the generous donations collected from our "70 Miles for 70 Years - Run, Walk or Roll" Fundraiser. We appreciate the leadership of these past Presidents in moving our profession forward. If you haven't already, check out this video montage of messages from our past Presidents. It is amazing to learn about the successes and challenges of our past from those who have led us to our future!
Net proceeds from this fundraiser supported the IPTF DEI Scholarship.
Step up and help us pave the way for the future of physical therapy
The Legacy Walk gives members and friends an opportunity to become a part of the Chapter's rich history and its future by purchasing engraved pavers to be installed in the brick pathway outside of the IPTA chapter office in Naperville. Groups or individuals can use the pavers to commemorate special occasions, honor professional contributions or memorialize past or current members. (For ideas, see how others have used the bricks below.)
The purpose of the Legacy Walk is to Support Physical Therapy Research here in Illinois! While the Legacy Walk was initially formed to help IPTA meet its pledge to raise $22,500 to help fund the Foundation for Physical Therapy's Center for Excellence in Health Services Research, we have met our goal through the help from our many generous benefactors. Now you can STEP UP and PAVE the WAY for RESEARCH in ILLINOIS. All proceeds from your purchase of a paver for the Legacy Walk will help fund our $1000 Research Grants, support student scholarships, and educate the public about physical therapy. Besides helping to raise funds, the Legacy Walk is a timeless tribute to the importance of physical therapy and to the individuals committed to preserving its future. Help IPTF support its' mission and create your own legacy in Physical Therapy! All paver purchases are 100% TAX DEDUCTIBLE. We challenge you to take the first step today!
All together we are supporting the IPTF Mission!
