While many people were getting ready to see the ponies in the Kentucky Derby on Saturday, the week before there was a dedicated group of physical therapists getting ready to run for mobility in the Kentucky Derby Half Marathon. Georgetown, KY’s “Hands on Therapy” office partnered with Free Wheelchair Mission’s Team Mobility and made their miles matter.
Captain Lea Morgan and 21 other runners all participated in the event as Team H.O.T. Wheels—they were hard to miss in their screaming-green jerseys! But they had an even greater impact than just drawing attention to some shirts—through their efforts more than $10,000 was raised for Free Wheelchair Mission: more than 156 people were lifted off of the ground! We just wanted to take a minute and highlight their efforts, as well as say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who ran in the event: you guys rock!
