From the bottom of our hearts, the NYU Department of Physical Therapy would like to thank everyone for their continuous support each year, especially during these times!

Funds will benefit the Foundation for Physical Therapy Research (FPTR).
The Foundation is an independent non-profit organization, one that is especially important to us as current and future PTs because it is the Foundation's work that allows clinicians to provide the best possible care to those who need it most. FPTR's funding has helped support groundbreaking research, providing evidence for physical therapy's crucial role in stroke rehabilitation, improving mobility in children with cerebral palsy, and offering pain free movement to individuals with low back pain.
So come out and run or walk for our aging grandparents, our wounded veterans, injured athletes who want to play again, and our future kids who will surely break bones doing things we tell them not to do!
As future physical therapists and current students, we welcome your support. Whether you are an experienced athlete, first timer, teenager, or senior citizen, get ready to lace up your running/walking shoes for physical therapy research!
