STAR Physical Therapy has a culture of serving our people, serving our patients, and serving our communities. Every year, we hope to make a difference by engaging our people through an annual community event which raises awareness and funds for a great cause. In the past, we have partnered with and supported many wonderful organizations including the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Wounded Warrior Project, Arthritis Foundation, Susan G. Komen breast cancer foundation and more. This year, we are proud to announce that we have partnered with the American Heart Association to support their mission – “To build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke”.
Beginning June 1st, each of our 65 STAR Physical Therapy locations will be working to raise awareness and funds for the American Heart Association. Look for each clinic’s collection can near the front desk and feel free to make a donation. Any amount is great – even spare change adds up! In addition, each location will be selling limited edition, custom designed heart themed STAR t-shirts for $20. These beautiful shirts are super soft and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the American Heart Association! Many of our locations have created additional fundraising activities as well. From bake sales, opportunities to hit your “favorite” physical therapist in the face with a pie, etc. – you are likely to see some unique happenings in and around our clinics. You may even see someone Hula Hooping in the clinic – it’s all good and is meant to support a great cause!
In addition to fundraising, our staff will be assessing their own cardiovascular health this summer. We are encouraging our people to increase their cardiovascular activities, check their blood pressure, and make time for a 30 minute walk each day. We will finally come together as a team on October 15th to participate in the Greater Nashville Heart Walk on the campus of Vanderbilt University.
Almost every family has been affected by heart disease. We hope you will join us this summer as we support the American Heart Foundation and their mission “To build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke”.
