Patsy Shropshire, PT, age 52, of Dallas, Texas, was chosen the winner. Paul Sullivan, PT, MHS, Cert. MDT, age 52, of Barrington, Illinois, was chosen second place finalist, and Bill Case, PT, SCS, age 56, of Houston, Texas, is the third place finalist. Read their stories.


    • As the oldest P.T. in the final group, I want to congratulate the top three winners. Their volunteer and patient-related activities were most impressive to me because the obvious on-going commitment to give their time and energy to others, in addition to their personal exercise activities. I take from them and the other finalists a push for me to do more in community outreach to seniors.
