The WPTA has exciting news for you. This year you can support both the Foundation for Physical Therapy as well as the WPT Fund with one donation. For every donation made to the WPT Fund's Legacy Endowment in 2013, the WPTA will send a matching donation to Foundation for Physical Therapy (total donation up to $10,000).
If you have been considering joining or renewing your membership in the Legacy Society, now is the time.

At the October WPTA Board of Directors Meeting, UW Student Megan Veltman shared stories of UW's service learning trips in 2012 to Uganda and Belize and asked for support for two trips planned in 2013. The BOD will fund $300 towards a service trip to Belize in January 2013 and $500 for supplies for the Uganda trip planned for June 2013. We hope you enjoy the photos from this year's trips. Watch for 2013 photos on the website and on WPTA's Facebook page!
