This Saturday, September 23, two independent, privately-owned physical therapy clinics will host the fourth annual “Walk & Roll For Mobility,” a 1.6 one-way walk along the DeKalb Nature Trail from Creative Therapeutics, 400 E. Hillcrest Drive in DeKalb, to Northern Rehab Physical Therapy Specialists 232 W. Lincoln Highway, DeKalb office. The event proceeds will benefit the Voluntary Action Center (VAC). Fun for the whole family – bikes, strollers, walking sticks, and skates welcome!
“Walk & Roll for Mobility” is a pre-kick-off to National Physical Therapy Month in October, and allows both independent clinics support a non-profit community organization. On event day, check in begins at 8:30am at Creative Therapeutics; a walking stick demonstration will be at 8:40am; a dynamic warm up is at 8:50am; raffle prize winners are drawn at 8:55am; and the walk kicks off at 9:00 am. Walk, ride, or roll from Creative Therapeutics to Northern Rehab along the DeKalb Nature Trail. Enjoy live music and refreshments upon arrival at Northern Rehab. Walk round-trip or one-way at this fundraising event; a VAC bus will be available for optional return transport back to Creative Therapeutics.
Pre-registration is suggested; those who pre-register by Sept. 21 will be entered into a drawing for various prizes! Register on line here or call 815.758.5508. A suggested donation of $5.00 per individual or $10 per family will be collected the day of the event upon check-in. All funds will go directly to the Voluntary Action Center (VAC).
While Northern Rehab and Creative Therapeutics are friendly competitors in business, as independent small businesses they share many values. As practitioners they connect with their patients and provide personal and individualized care. Both companies encourage the community to understand that they have the right to choose where you receive care.
Hosted by Northern Rehab and Creative Therapeutics – your independent choices for physical therapy- we invite all of our past patients, friends and families, and businesses to participate and celebrate your independence and freedom to move at this fun, family event!
