The Challenge is the largest annual student-driven fundraising effort for the Foundation for Physical Therapy. The money raised by PT and PTA students helps fund scholarships and grants that advance patient care. Additionally the Challenge also supports the rigorous scientific review process for all Foundation grants and scholarships. Since its inception in 1989, 269 schools have participated in raising over $3.7 million for physical therapy research.  The CU PT students have participated in this challenge for four years now and have received an award for participation each year.
