By Purnell T. Cropper | April 24, 2012

Arcadia University Physical Therapy students participated in the Stamp Out Parkinson’s Walk on Kelly Drive on Saturday, April 21. A team of 22 PT students, captained by Assistant Professor Emerita Dr. Carol Leiper raised more than $2,000 for the Parkinson Council.

All money raised stays in the Greater Philadelphia area to support services, research and programs for local residents and scientists. The Parkinson Council has provided equipment grants to assist the Dan Aaron Stay Fit Exercise Program for Individuals with Parkinson Disease or Multiple Sclerosis, which is housed in the Arcadia University Department of Physical Therapy.
