October Fundraiser Supporting Girls on the Run

October 13, 2017

Specialized Physical Therapy is excited to announce that we are raising money for Girls on the Run of WNC this October. Our goal is to raise $3,000 by the end of October and to that end we have gotten things started with a donation of $500! You can donate any number of different ways!

Gift Basket Raffle

We have put together a wonderful gift basket full of great prizes from local businesses, including over $400 worth of goodies. There are also individual prizes to win, totaling over $600! We have included a full list of prizes below.

To get your chance to win, swing by our clinic or the Girls on the Run office at 50 S. French Broad Ave., Suite 204 in downtown Asheville to buy your $5 ticket. Your ticket is immediately redeemable for $10 off purchases at Fleet Feet Sports Asheville in Biltmore Park. You can also donate directly to the GoFundMe Page we have set up, and all proceeds go directly to Girls on the Run.

Donating Time

We aren’t just raising money, we are also donating our time. We believe strongly in the mission of Girls on the Run to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. Our very own Jackie Burris has volunteered to work with these young girls.

During her time with the group, Jackie saw that the girls spent time discussing what it means to be grateful, how to identify healthy choices throughout the day, and had fun running with the girls for 40 minutes! The girls had a wonderful time encouraging one another and recognizing the challenges that they each face. 

Make sure that you don’t miss out on this opportunity to help out such an incredible organization with such a powerful mission. Make sure to make your donation at your next visit or swing by either our clinic or the Girls on the Run office to contribute. Thank you to all of our supporters!
