We did it! In 2022 we moved and grooved and supported Children’s Therapy Center through our 2nd successful Move-a-Thon event!

Together, we raised more than $70,000 to support CTC’s vital early supports and therapy for children with special needs in our communities. Stay tuned for our 2023 Move-a-Thon dates, which will be announced soon!

How it Works

Want to join the fun but can’t move with us this time? Support CTC with a donation of any amount and help us reach our goal!
