Sept. 22 marks the launch of an APTA-led effort to make a collective impact on our communities during the last 100 days of our centennial year. To help make it easy, we're offering access to various service activities at the national, APTA component, and individual levels.

The initiative, called "100 Days of Service," is all about sparking engagement, collaboration with other APTA members, and increased awareness of the physical therapy profession.

APTA collaborated with Special Olympics, Go Baby Go, and Move Together to create toolkits that help you develop an activity that fits your interest and schedule. These resources, along with additional resources provided by components, are available on the Centennial website Serve page.

Your participation can be on a large or small scale, for a single day or over several. The important thing is to get out there and show the physical therapy profession's commitment to community.

While you're at it, be sure to list your service activities on the Centennial Events calendar and share them on social media using the hashtag #APTA100. Your community service story could be the one that inspires others to do the same, and who knows where things could go from there?

For questions about 100 Days of Service, contact centennial@apta.org.
