Walk & Roll for Mobility 2017 Raises $1200!
The fourth annual Walk & Roll for Mobility held in September 2017 was another great success!
Two independent physical therapy clinics, Northern Rehab Physical Therapy Specialists and Creative Therapeutics, teamed together to kick off National Physical Therapy Month and hosted a 1.5 mile walk along the DeKalb Nature Trail to encourage our community to be active while supporting the Voluntary Action Center of DeKalb County. “We are happy to support the Voluntary Action Center as the recipient of this annual fundraiser because their various programs support the needs in our community” comments Lynn Batalden of Creative Therapeutics. This is the fourth year of this event with over 65 participants walking, rolling, strolling and riding along the trail on a beautiful and warm fall morning. Ken Olson of Northern Rehab adds, “We are pleased to present the Voluntary Action Center with a check for $1,200.00 to help support their community programs such as Meals on Wheels, TransVAC and MedVAC.”

Both Northern Rehab and Creative Therapeutics extend their gratitude to the community members that participated in this event and supported the Voluntary Action Center! Thank you to everyone for your generous support!
