Terry Fox Run for Cancer Research 2021

PT Day of Service NY Physical Therapy Association

October 9th, 2021 is Global PT Day of Service! This year for PT Day of Service (PTDOS) the New York Physical Therapy Association (NYPTA) will again participate in the Terry Fox Run for Cancer Research in New York City (NYC).

For more information about PTDOS please visit ptdayofservice.com.

This event is a non-competitive, no entry fee 5K family fun run/walk to raise funds for cancer research at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York. We are planning on an in-person run/walk and will follow the latest COVID guidelines and protocols.

Every dollar donated by our team (big or small!) will go straight to support cancer research. Cancer touches too many lives and hits too close to home, so we are doing what we can to stop this terrible disease. Since the Terry Fox Run for cancer research in New York City began more than two decades ago, over $3 million has been raised. Let's be part of the fight in ending cancer!

For more information about the Terry Fox Run for Cancer Research visit the About Us tab on the home page.
