2013 NYC Arthritis Walk, Sunday May 19th

ActiveCare Physical Therapy is participating in the 2013 NYC Arthritis Walkin Battery Park City on Sunday, May 19th.  Last year, we won the Physical Therapy Practice Challenge and were honored with a booth.  Karena was also asked to lead the warm-up stretch before the official walk began.  This year, Karena teams up with the Arthritis Foundation as a Committee member in charge as the In-Kind Coordinator, looking for any food and drink donations for the event.  This event is special for us because Karena was diagnosed with arthritis at age 35.  She has worked with many patients afflicted with this condition and wants to help raise funds for further research.  Our goal is $10,000.  Our Team: ActiveCare PT.  Please help us in any way, either by walking with us and/or making a donation at http://www.newyorkaw.kintera.org/bestptnyc.  We hope to have you walk on May 19th and help support this cause.  Every little bit counts! Thank you for your support!!
