We are joining forces to further support the PT World.
Now you can find PT Pub Night on our home page, where you can support their cause just as you can support the State PT PACs!
50¢ of every electrode pack purchased will go to their campaign, in your name, BUT there is more: PT4PT will add another $10 to that amount on each checkout, until the end if April!
How do you like that?

So, what is BracketPT? If you’re new to this, the concept is simple.
BracketPT is a challenge to physical therapists, PT students, aides, friends, family, and those who support the profession across the country to compete in a single, online NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament “March Madness” bracket. The goal: to have fun, to earn bragging rights (both in your clinic and across the national PT Pub Night community) and, most important, to raise money for a great cause.
In our inaugural year, BracketPT brought together multiple donors and nearly 400 participants to raise $2,500 for charities such as Special Olympics, Girls on the Run, the Foundation for Physical Therapy, and yes, Disabled Sports USA. We narrowed our focus to a single charity in our second year in order to make the greatest impact possible.
Our 2016 beneficiary, Disabled Sports USA, is a national nonprofit organization with a mission all PTs can get behind: to provide adaptive sports opportunities for people with disabilities to develop independence, confidence and fitness through sports.
Their work truly changes lives.
“First, thank you so much for allowing us to participate again this year!” wrote Dave Simonson, development director for Disabled Sports USA. “We LOVE PT’s, so being included in this fundraiser is especially meaningful to us.”
Donors are already signing up to pledge contributions to Disabled Sports USA based on the number of participants in this year’s tournament. And sponsors such as PT4PT, Cell Staff, BuildPT, NewGradPhysicalTherapy.com, PT Pintcast, GetPT1st, and Vantage Clinical Solutions, have come on board to support our efforts and get the word out.
(By the way, both individual and business/sponsor donations are welcome and can be made here.)
It all adds up to an online effort that’s not only fun for participants, but which also carries with it the potential for physical therapists and PT students to make a single, collective statement in the name of the profession: that no matter age, ability, location or financial background, optimal movement wields the power to change the world, one life at a time.
