On Sunday, October 11th, to celebrate National Physical Therapy Month, “Team ONS” took part in Susannah’s Run, a 5-K run (or walk) at Tod’s Point in Old Greenwich, to support the Susannah Chase Memorial Scholarship Fund established in 1998. The annual event celebrates Susannah’s love of the outdoors and her dedication to running. Proceeds from Susannah’s Run will go towards a scholarship given to a GHS senior every year in honor of Susannah Chase.
National Physical Therapy Month, sponsored by the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), is a nationwide observance held each October. This year’s theme, “Move Forward: Physical Therapy Brings Motion to Life” reflects the physical therapist brand, “Physical therapists help you restore and improve motion to achieve long-term quality of life.”
Seven members of the staff of ONS Physical Therapy put on their running shoes to participate in the event. ONS sponsored the team and made a donation to help the cause.
