2018 Ride for Research
Share |
 

October 4-7, 2018

San Francisco - Los Angeles


The mission of the CAL-PT-FUND is to advance the science and practice of physical therapy by providing $10,000 each year in grant support to physical therapist researchers in California. The CAL-PT-FUND is committed to building the body of knowledge to support evidence-based, high-quality, cost-effective physical therapy. 

 

The FUND's Annual Ride for Research has become our largest fundraiser for providing grant support and is back for the fourth year in a row! 

 

The Ride for Research is a four-day cycling event from San Francisco to LA. Each day will consist of approximately 100-130 miles of cycling. Representatives from the PT community and members of the CPTA board will make the long journey with the goal of spreading awareness about the FUND and to raise money for grant funding. 

 

This annual event has raised over $35,000 over the last 3 years! The ride is a great opportunity for you to donate to the FUND in support of their mission and to help emerging researchers in California.
