Join the Foundation for Physical Therapy Research and students across the country as we kick off the 2022-2023 VCU-Marquette Challenge. RSVP for our virtual event on Oct. 12 at 7 p.m. ET.
The Marquette Challenge is a student-led annual fundraiser to support research. Each year, hundreds of physical therapist and physical therapist assistant students — with the support of their program directors, faculty, and community — hold events to raise money for the Foundation for Physical Therapy Research. Since 1989, more than 300 schools have raised $4.6 million to fund scholarships, fellowships, and research. Be a part of the movement to support and advance research into physical therapy today.
