From Monday, December 7, 2009 through Saturday, December 12, 2009 WSPT will be hosting a Treadmill Walk-a-Thon to benefit the Arthritis Foundation. Participants will log time on WSPT’s treadmills, including the therapy pool treadmill, to raise funds on behalf of the Arthritis Foundation.

“We thought it was a great idea to bring the cause into our practice so that our patients, their families and anyone who knows someone afflicted with arthritis can participate,” said WSPT Executive Director, Daniel Seidler, “without having to be out in the cold.”

In addition to raising money for a worthy cause, walkers will be rewarded with WSPT tokens of appreciation such as WSPT gear, free massages, and personal training sessions. In addition, the walkers who clock the farthest distance and raise the most funds will receive a free WSPT Gym membership.

Participation is open to anyone and all donations are tax deductible.
