Wakefield/Rotary District 7930 is holding its 4th Annual Polar Plunge on Saturday, February 1, at 11:00am, on Long Beach in Gloucester, right in front of the Cape Ann Motor Inn.

This year's HD Physical Therapy Team plungers include Wakefield Rotary Club member Ed Harding, along with rookie jumpers, HDPT co-founder Glenn D'Addario, MSPT, DPT, and staff members, Svet Wilson, PTA, ATC, Robbie Barletta, PTA, Marilena Lobrutto, Katie Crowley & Becca Marrama!

TEAM HDPT’s fundraising goal is $3000, with the Wakefield Rotary’s cash donation goal being $10,000, to aid in the district’s goal of raising $100,000.

Team captain, plunger Ed explains, “for as little as 60 cents worth of an oral vaccine, a child can be protected from the disease for life. The plunge event is fun for everyone, but the real money we raise directly translates to thousands of vaccines. It is an amazing feeling to know that we have a hand in preventing a crippling disease from affecting children.”

In 2012, 429 million children were vaccinated against polio, with less then 300 cases reported. That figure represents a decline of more then 60% from 2011.

Since 1985, Polio has become the signature cause for Rotary International, with the mission to eradicate it from the world entirely. More than a billion dollars has been raised between Rotary clubs world wide, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. When Rotary took on the battle against this disease more then 350,000 people spanning 125 countries were impacted. Today there are three countries left where it has not been eradicated, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Nigeria.

Support TEAM HDPT and the Wakefield/District 7930 Rotary Club’s plan to eradicate polio in our lifetime. Pledge today and come watch them all take the plunge!

HD PHYSICAL THERAPY Announces Silver Medal Win

HD PHYSICAL THERAPY Announces Silver Medal Win in Trade Magazine Contest

HD Physical Therapy is honored to announce that they received the silver medal in ADVANCE Magazine for Physical Therapy & Rehab Medicine’s 12th annual Practice of the Year contest! The award was recently broadcasted in the December 2013 issue.

“For being a single-location clinic only in practice for 18 months, winning second place in this prestigious, national competition is an immense honor,” said HDPT co-founder Glenn D’Addario, MSPT, DPT.

“My partner, Ed Harding, PTA, and I have similar values and share the same vision. We wanted to create an exceptional place where we could help as many people as possible,” D’Addario said. “We are very proud and excited to have accomplished that, and to be recognized for it in such a significant manner. This award is a true reflection of the diligence and dedication we have put into HDPT, and of our extraordinary team that we share this with.”

Now in its 12th year, the ADVANCE Practice of the Year Contest tallies anonymous entries from across the globe, and scores them on a range of success metrics. They look at customer service standards, practice growth, revenue growth, recruiting and staff development and professional standing. The contest is free to enter and is never connected with advertising contracts or other incentives. The judging panel is made up exclusively of physical therapy private practice owners and previous winners of the contest.

The physical therapy practices that were chosen as runners up in this year's installment of the contest are all focusing on expanding their offering of services, staying true to the guiding principles of the profession, using new media to promote themselves and the physical therapy profession, and above all, offering superior consumer service through evidence-based care.
