Oak Brook, IL (PRWEB) October 10, 2011
October is National Physical Therapy Month, and AthletiCo Physical and Occupational Therapy, a Midwest provider of rehabilitation and fitness services, is celebrating by giving back to its patients and the community in the following ways:
1. LifeSource Blood Drive at 6 AthletiCo Locations
This year, in an effort to continuously improve AthletiCo’s annual blood drive, AthletiCo has teamed up with LifeSource, the largest blood center in Illinois, to hold 6 convenient drives at AthletiCo locations in Oak Brook, Deerfield, Naperville, Hoffman Estates, and two Chicago locations. Registration for the blood drive is open to the public.
2. Annual Shoe Drive to Support Share Your Soles
AthletiCo once again is holding its annual shoe drive from October 3 – 15. Every AthletiCo facility will be collecting new and gently used shoes to be donated to Share Your Soles, a local non-profit organization that distributes shoes to impoverished and underprivileged communities in the United States and around the world.
3. Lee National Denim Day
AthletiCo once again supported Lee National Denim Day to raise money in the fight against breast cancer. On October 7, AthletiCo donated to the cause and wore jeans and the color pink to show their support.
4. Patient Appreciation Sweepstakes to Win Tickets to the Joffrey Ballet’s The Nutcracker
AthletiCo is offering patients the opportunity to enter our PT Month Sweepstakes to win tickets to the Joffrey Ballet's performance of The Nutcracker at the Auditorium Theatre this December.
5. Physical Therapy Blog Posts
The AthletiCo Blog is a resource created to extend AthletiCo’s expertise in the healthcare industry and foster an environment where patients and readers can be educated on all areas of their well-being. Throughout October, our blog posts will continue to educate about the physical therapy profession, including a post about the top 10 things you didn’t know about physical therapy.
6. Complimentary Injury Screenings
AthletiCo is here to help people get back to doing what they love to do. That is why we offer complimentary injury screenings where a licensed professional will assess strength, range of motion, and flexibility, which will help guide your medical options. And when it comes to complimentary injury screenings, every month is PT Month as complimentary injury screenings are offered year-round.
