Emory Is Selected To Be Part of the Cornerstone Society of the Marquette Challenge Philanthropy Circle

William G. Boissonnault, PT, DHSc, FAAOMPT, FAPTA, President/Chair of the Foundation for Physical Therapy, recently informed the Emory DPT Program of its selection by the Board of Trustees of the Foundation for Physical Therapy to join the Cornerstone Society in the Marquette Challenge Philanthropy Circle.

The Marquette Challenge Philanthropy Circle was developed to recognize academic institutions for longstanding support of physical therapy research through the annual Marquette Challenge. Emory University has raised more than $65,000 in 10 years for the Marquette Challenge. The Challenge is now the single largest annual fundraising event conducted for the Foundation.

The Cornerstone Society award will be presented to an Emory DPT student representative during the Foundation’s Gala on June 17, 2010 in Boston, MA.

Congratulations to the many students who have dedicated their time and energy toward raising money to support the Foundation. We are all proud of this achievement!
