In partnership with Advanced Care Physical Therapy, Villa Maria College students enrolled in the Physical Therapist Assistant program will once again volunteer at the Ride for Roswell on Saturday June 27, 2015.
For 20 years, The Ride For Roswell has raised funds to support research and development at Roswell Park, a leading cancer research and treatment center located in Downtown Buffalo. Cyclists raise money to ride routes from 3 miles to 100 miles long throughout Western New York and Niagara Falls, Canada. Many cancer survivors, patients, family members, and friends participate each year in the event.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for our students to use their clinical skills to help the community and support a very worthy cause,” Dr. Kim Kotz, academic coordinator and professor in Villa’s Physical Therapist Assistant program said.
Partnering with Advanced Care Physical Therapy team gives Villa PTA students and graduates a good community role model, Kotz said.
The following Villa volunteers will be on hand at The Ride for Roswell providing services:
- Megan Carr ’16
- Shawn Conrad ’16
- Cortney Corbett ’16
- Eboniece Hilliard ’16
- Gina Laing ’16
- Marcy Manning ’15
