Get 'Caught Doing Good,' and APTA May Donate $500 to Your Charity of Choice

Making plans for the Global PT Day of Service coming up on October 13? Snap a picture of what you're up to, and your charity of choice could wind up with a $500 donation from APTA.

Now in its third year, the Global PT Day of Service is an initiative designed to inspire physical therapists (PTs), physical therapist assistants (PTAs), students, and supporters of the profession to step up and make a difference in the lives of others through community service. All types of service efforts are welcomed, from volunteering at a pro bono clinic, to cleaning up a local park, to providing community children with working bicycles. It's a great time to get creative with impactful ideas that help underscore the transformative power of the physical therapy profession.

Again this year, APTA is highlighting the day by way of a photo contest. The rules are simple: share a photo or set of photos from your community event through social media during the week of October 8-13. Be sure to use the hashtag #PTDOS, and you're entered. APTA will choose a winner and donate $500 to the charity of the winner's choice—as well as publish the photo or photos on the APTA website. Photos must be posted by midnight Friday, October 19, to be considered.
