About This Activity

The physical therapy student group at the School of Physical Therapy at MCPHS University is holding our 3rd annual Moving Forward 5K race on Saturday, June 4, 2016 to raise funds to support Lucy’s Love Bus and the Foundation for Physical Therapy.

Lucy’s Love Bus is a local charity striving to deliver not only comfort but also a greater quality of life to children with terminal cancer.  This organization provides these children with integrative therapies such as massage, acupuncture, art therapy, and therapeutic horseback riding to help manage the side effects of cancer treatments.

Our school donates to the Foundation for Physical Therapy Research each year through the Marquette Challenge, along with several other physical therapy schools across the country. The goal of this organization is to fund physical therapy research for the development of new and innovative treatments to help individuals regain independence and function to the best of his or her ability.

Join us for this fun event to support physical therapy and promote wellness in our community! The race is held at Lake Park in Worcester, a family friendly park right on the lake. Breakfast foods and snacks will be served after the race to re-fuel and prizes will be awarded to the top race participants.
