Texas Tech wants you to get in shape and contribute to a worthy cause. It’s not too late to sign up for a 5K run or bike ride (25 miles or 50 miles) scheduled for 8am at Ranson Canyon on Saturday, Oct. 13th.

The event, called the PT (physical therapy) Classic, occurs annually, and coincides with National Physical Therapy Month. Proceeds go to the UMC Hamar Burn Center to assist in the funding of burn compression garments.

Those who register early online will receive a $5 discount. Students receive $5 off registration with a student ID. On-site registration will be available from 7-7:30am Saturday at Joe’s Canyon Café and Pizza at 8312 East FM 3523 in Slaton. Packet pick-up will be Oct. 12 at Joe’s.

The event is hosted by Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) School of Allied Health Sciences, the Student Physical Therapy Assocation (SPTA), and The South Plains District of the Texas Physical Therapy Association (TPTA).

“It’s a great opportunity to bring local health care providers and businesses together to give back to the community; especially to families who are less fortunate than most, financially speaking, and are in need of medical supplies,” said physical therapy student Joshua Fong.

The 2012 PT Classic is sponsored by McCombs & Associates Physical Therapy, Levelland Physical Therapy, Einstein’s Bagels, Scarborough Specialties, and Broadway Bikes.
