WebPT is challenging the entire rehab community to band together and help raise awareness and funding to assist those families, communities, and clinics impacted by recent natural disasters.
Hurricanes Michael and Florence are the latest hurricanes to wreak havoc on the East Coast, with estimates of the damage from Hurricane Florence alone in the $20 billion dollar range.
As rehab therapists, we’re driven by a deep desire to help people. It’s why many of us chose this profession in the first place. Well, right now, we have an opportunity to channel that drive into action for the greater good. In the words of Helen Walton, it’s not what you gather, but what you scatter that tells what kind of life you have lived. Let’s mobilize as a community to channel that desire toward a higher purpose.
Please, give what you can—every donation counts—and help us spread the word about this worthy cause.
Founding Donors: WebPT and APTA

In 2017, Hurricane Harvey caused widespread, catastrophic flooding and damage in Texas and along the Gulf Coast.

All donations to this fund will exclusively support relief and recovery efforts from this storm.
In 2017, Hurricane Maria's powerful winds and torrential rains caused massive damage across the Caribbean, destroying homes in Puerto Rico, Dominica, and the Virgin Islands just two weeks after Hurricane Irma passed through the region.
