Emory DPT students come together to raise funds for Physical Therapy Research

The Emory DPT program was excited to have their Annual Marquette Challenge Gala
reestablished this year after taking a short hiatus due to COVID-19. Funds raised by physical
therapy programs across the country during the Marquette Challenge support the Foundation for
Physical Therapy Research and are used for grants, scholarships and fellowships to support
physical therapy research.

This year’s Emory DPT Gala took place on Friday November 12th, at the Emory School of
Medicine. DPT students and faculty enjoyed a fun evening with light refreshments and snacks,
along with a raffle including exciting items such as a one-month membership at Barre3 studio, or
Atlanta Hawks tickets and many more. There were 150 attendees and DPT students raised
$3,691 for the Marquette Challenge. The event was organized by second year students Madison
Winter and Lydia Rotenberger with help from the first, second and third year social and
philanthropy committees.
