Move-A-Thon event participant

Thanks For Making Your Moves in 2021!

For 10 days in October, we moved and grooved and together we made Children's Therapy Center's first Move-A-Thon event a grand success!

Together, more than 150 people, alongside local businesses raised more than $50,000 to support CTC’s vital services for children with special needs.

The outpouring of support during this event was incredible! The staff and board of CTC want to thank all of our supporters, volunteers, participants, CTC families, and our sponsors who all helped make this event a reality.

We look forward to growing and evolving this event in the years ahead – so stay tuned to this page for information on next year’s event.

Thank you again, for all you do to support children with special needs reach their fullest potential.

How it Worked

Supporters registered for the event and raised funds on personal fundraising pages to support critical CTC programs. Throughout the event supporters logged their movement sessions for a chance to win prizes and shared stories on social media and posted photos, videos, routes, and supported the accomplishments of other participants. We cheered on our fellow movers from afar, knowing that we are strengthening our region together.

Our Move-a-Thon is a great way to connect with friends and family who might not live nearby and participate in something "together" that works for your group members. 

There are a couple options for registration. Go to our main fundraising page here. One there, you have two options to register:
