HD PHYSICAL THERAPY to Take the Polar Plunge
Wakefield physical therapy practice is raising funds again to end polio
This year's TEAM HDPT plungers include Wakefield Rotary Club Board member and HDPT co-founder Ed Harding, PTA, along with HDPT co-founder Glenn D'Addario, MSPT, DPT, and staff members, Svet Wilson, PTA, ATC, Robbie Barletta, PTA, Sean Flaherty, PT, OCS, Ryan Moore, Chris Foster, Lindsey Keane & Adrienne Stelmack. We also have HDPT family members Elliot Shea and Diarmuid Cahill joining us!
Team captain Ed explains, “for as little as 60 cents worth of an oral vaccine, a child can be protected from the disease for life. The plunge event is fun for everyone, but the real money we raise directly translates to thousands of vaccines. It is an amazing feeling to know that we have a hand in preventing a crippling disease from affecting children.”
After over 20 years of hard work, Rotary and its partners are on the brink of eradicating polio; a strong push is needed now to root it out once and for all. Donations directly support immunization campaigns in developing countries where polio continues to infect and paralyze children, robbing them of their futures and compounding the hardships faced by their families.
All proceeds benefit The Rotary Foundation’s End Polio Now Campaign. Plus, all gifts are matched 2:1 by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation!
