Dr. Stanley Paris and his companions cycled through Phoenix on a sunny, seasonably warm day. Tan and only a bit tired, the riders were already on day five of their 30-day, 3,000-mile journey from San Diego, California, to St. Augustine, Florida. Why take on such a grueling challenge? To raise funds and awareness for the Foundation for Physical Therapy, a cause we wholeheartedly believe in.
In addition to our continued financial support of the Foundation for PT, we wanted to assist the riders however we could. As the group pulled up to the head of the Greenway Channel Trail on Tuesday, we greeted the riders with water, Gatorade, and healthy snacks to keep them fueled.

And they’re off on the next leg of their journey!
We were happy to contribute in some small way, but Dr. Paris and his companions are in for a long haul—and they need your help. To support the Ride for PT Research, you can volunteer along the way, join the ride, or make a donation.
