PT Day of Service has created an amazing opportunity for the entire physical therapy to unite for one day with one goal: Impact the world for the better. With the help of all our faculty, students, and key members of the community, we, at FIU Physical Therapy have come together to deliver our contribution. Following our program mission to contribute to the health of our community, we will be volunteering at the Miami Kids Triathlon.
Working with a young population will allow us to have an exponentially positive effect as we encourage the youth of Miami to continue to engage in healthy lifestyles, and with over 30 participants, we plan on making this event nothing short of awesome.
On a larger scale, our inspiration to join PT Day Of Service is to be a part of a widespread humanitarian effort that is coordinating to improve the lives of people worldwide at least for a day. However, as excitement continues to buzz amongst our peers, it is beyond doubt that October 17th will have a resonating effect in our global community.
