The 2016 NYU DPT 5K for the Foundation of Physical Therapy was held on March 5th at Hudson River Park in Manhattan. Over 300 runners of all ages participated along with department faculty, including Dr. Kevin Weaver and his family, Dr. Smita Rao, as well as virtual 5k runners who donated and participated from afar.
Race coordinators Winnie Adrien, Darla DeVito, Liz Arnold, and Adira Vinograd did an excellent job putting together this event, along with the second year students.
The race proved to be a huge success and was a bright spot during the chilly month of March! Total funds raised were $13,992.13 which were donated to the Foundation for Physical Therapy to support research. We look forward to running for the cause again in March 2017.
