Arcadia University’s Physical Therapy department has been named a member of the 2015 Miami-Marquette Challenge Philanthropy Circle for raising more than $50,000 over 23 years. The Challenge is an annual fundraising event carried out by physical therapy and physical therapy assistant students across the country in support of research and grant funding.

As part of the “Cornerstone Society” category of the Philanthropy Circle, schools must have raised at least $50,000 over 10 or more years. Arcadia students have been fundraising for The Challenge since 1993.

This year the participating schools raised a combined total of $275,423.
