The Vermont Chapter of the American Physical Therapy Association (VT-APTA) will hold its 12th annual Vermont APTA golf tournament to benefit Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports.
Just one of the organization's many fundraiser events throughout each year, the Vermont Adaptive provides daily, year-round programming for people with disabilities. Since its inception, the golf tournament has raised more than $60,000 for Vermont Adaptive and VT-APTA.
Vermont Adaptive is the only organization in the state which provides this level of programming, providing financial underwriting for year-round activities including
skiing, hiking, cycling, sailing, paddling, tennis, and horseback riding.
Volunteer members of the Vermont Chapter of the APTA represent the profession of physical therapy, lawmakers and the insurance industry as an integral component of health care by supporting and promoting education, practice and research. They also strive to ensure the public and the physical therapy profession are protected by promoting fair regulations and legislation.
"Teaming up with the VT-APTA is a natural fit," Erin Fernandez recently stated. Fernandez is the Executive Director of Vermont Adaptive. "Their goal as physical therapists is to optimize human health function and recreational performance… amd we're looking forward to another great tournament this year."
This years' tournament will be held at the Links at Lang Farm in Essex, with registration from 11 a.m. to noon, with introductions at 11:45 p.m. The four-person scramble format begins at noon, with an awards ceremony and barbeque following the conclusion of the tournament.
The $400 entrée fee covers a team of four and includes 18 holes of golf with cart, unlimited use of the practice facility one hour prior to the start of the tournament, a tee-gift, prizes and the aforementioned barbecue. Individual entry is $100 per person. And hole- sponsorship is also available, ranging from $100 to $650.
