Giving Back Across NY State

John Andrew Holmes once said, “There is no better exercise for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up.” At Sports Physical Therapy, we take Mr. Holmes’ call-to-action seriously. You will find every location of ours actively engaged throughout the year in helping others.

For example, after Superstorm Sandy devastated so many last October, you found all 21 of our clinics collecting donations of cleaning supplies, clothing, food, and small appliances to give to those impacted. There were over 10 carloads of items collected and delivered to the New York City area.

During the holidays last December, 17 of our clinics participated in Salvation Army programs such as Toys for Tots and Adopt-A-Family, or supporting local agencies trying to help underserved populations enjoy their holidays.

Each month, our Administrative Office holds a $2 Tuesday lunch. All the money raised at these lunches goes to a non-profit organization in need. To date, we’ve raised over $300 to help agencies like the American Red CrossVera House of Central New York, and the Central New York Food Bank. And, if that’s not enough, the staff in this office sells tickets for staff to wear jeans to work. That effort has raised over $500 and has helped agencies like North Area Meals on Wheels (Liverpool, NY), University Methodist Church Food Pantry, and others.

We have numerous employees who are active with community walks and runs, helping to raise money for agencies like the Arthritis FoundationAmerican Heart Association, and Juvenile Diabetes. Their efforts have helped raised hundreds of dollars just in the last year!

We thank you for your support of our efforts. Together, we are making a difference in the lives of many!
