JUNE 2015 PAVER INSTALLMENT

purchase a paver on the legacy walk at IPTA

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 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. Once funded, the Center for Excellence will conduct research to delineate the value of PT services for individuals and for population health. This effort is critical to the achievement of both the APTA and IPTA vision.

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.

All paver purchases are 100% tax-deductible.
