1st Annual Action Rehab Race in celebration of National
Physical Therapy Month was a success! We held the race on October 16,
1999 and it went off without a hitch. We had decent weather for
that time of the year and 20 individuals participated in the
race---not bad for our first race. After the race, we visited together
in the main Auke Rec pavilion with a roaring fire, hot apple cider,
and muffins. Prizes were given to the winners and a drawing was held
to win cool Physical Therapy Month memorabilia. The following list is
the overall winners from the race, which was part of the Southeast
Road Runners series:
Hope to see you all September 23,
2000 for the 2nd Annual Action Rehab Race.

One of our
therapists went to Auke Bay school to talk to the 3rd graders about the function of muscles and the importance
of good posture and safe lifting. We hope that some of these
kids will take the information to heart
and will avoid injuries in their future.
