Arrow Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation Staff Complete 5k Charity Run, Help Runners Enjoy an Injury-Free Event
Congratulations to APT&R therapists, Adam Daubert and Rupa Patel, for completing the Lakeview 5k run this past Saturday. The annual event took place at the Lakeview School in Edison to benefit New Jersey Institute for Disabilities. The Institute works with more than 1,500 infants, children and adults with disabilities throughout New Jersey. The charity event garnered more than 500 visitors and participants from all over the tri-state area.
Our staff was also available for warm-up and cool down stretching sessions. About 30 attendees stopped by the APT&R table including the Somerset Patriots baseball team’s mascot, who needed a good stretch to prepare to cheer on runners.
“We enjoy participating in community events – it helps bring the APT&R family closer together while doing something special for others,” said APT&R owner and CEO Amit Gaglani, PT, CS, OCS. He added, “It was extremely hot out there so it was that much more important to ensure participants were well-hydrated and stretched.”
New Jersey Institute for Disabilities is the largest non-profit organization of its kind in the United States, providing awareness of cerebral palsy and enrichment classes for individuals with disabilities for more than 50 years.
