Ride for Research

October 8-11, 2020
San Francisco-Los Angeles

The mission of the CAL-PT-FUND is to advance the science and practice of physical therapy by providing $20,000 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 fifth 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 close to $50,000 over the last 4 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.

Register to Ride

We welcome everyone to dust off their bikes and join in the Ride! You can ride for any portion of the ride that you like. Whether you want to power through all four days or just ride a few miles, you set your own limit. Being a rider is free - but we ask that you register ahead of time so that you can be included in important route communications.


Donate to the Ride

If riding isn't your forte but you would still like to support the CAL-PT-FUND, you can make a donation and "Adopt A Mile." We have broken the entire Ride down into one-mile increments. Each mile can be "adopted" for $50, and you can adopt as many as you like.
