Broad Street ReRun Aims To Create Future Business Leaders!
LANSDALE, PA – The Physical Therapy & Wellness Institute (PTW) is once again proud to host the 5-Mile Broad Street ReRun on Saturday, May 19 at 8:30 AM. Rain or shine, the event will start from the Pavilion Shopping Center on South Broad Street in Lansdale and continue to Morris Road and back. Returning to the event this year is the one-mile fun run for children of all ages, while new this year is chip timing.
The race will benefit The Community Health & Youth Foundation, an affiliate of the Chamber of Commerce for the Greater Montgomery County. The foundation’s mission includes collaborating with the business community to foster programs and activities, which target education and wellness in order to enhance the quality of life within Greater Montgomery County. Their initiatives include scholarship programs for students to attend Pennsylvania Free Enterprise Week (PFEW) during different sessions throughout the summer. PFEW is a one of a kind program that allows incoming high school juniors and seniors to collaborate in teams to run an imaginary business. During these sessions, students are assigned roles similar to that of a real business with the goal of achieving financial success! Students develop their own marketing strategy, website concepts, and make all the decisions real company executives are faced with. Last year, through the leadership from the folks at PTW, the large group of volunteers, and the generous sponsorships, the proceeds of this event were able to support 6 scholarships for this 1 week retreat.
Graduates of PFEW have gone on to be successful in their field and students speak highly of the program. Maggie, who is a current junior at Souderton Area High School says, “while attending PFEW I was able to learn how to communicate effectively in a business setting. I was able to meet friends and learn different aspects of running a company. Because of my time at PFEW I have decided to pursue a Marketing and Communications degree at either Ohio State or Penn State!”
PTW organizes and runs the Broad Street ReRun each year because of stories similar to Maggie’s. PTW recognizes the immense talent located in Montgomery County and wants to help contribute to molding the business leaders of the future. The monies raised from the Broad Street ReRun go directly to the Community Youth & Health Foundation which in turns helps create scholarship opportunities for local students wishing to attend PFEW.
PTW expects the Broad Street ReRun to be one of the biggest events in Lansdale of 2018 with a goal of over 400 runners. Registration is available online or via mail which can be accessed on BroadStreetReRun.com, or though PTWs website www.ptwinstitute.com. PTW is also seeking volunteers!
