About the Challenge

The Challenge is an annual grassroots fundraising effort coordinated and carried out by physical therapist and physical therapist assistant students across the country to support new investigators in the field of physical therapy research.

Now in its 30th year, students have raised more than $4 million for physical therapy research since the Challenge’s inception. Further, 269 schools have participated in the Challenge.
