Bucky's Race for Rehab Canceled

Bucky's Race for Rehab has been canceled and unfortunately due to the uncertainty surrounding the Covid-19 situation we are unable to set a reschedule date at this time. You will be receiving an email from our organization within the week to outline options for either refunding your race day fees or donating these fees to our non-profit student organization. The safety of our community is our top priority and we appreciate your patience and understanding during this time. 

Here Are Your Options:

Many of you have very generously asked to donate your registration fee as a way to support our nonprofit student organization in the wake of this event being canceled due to these unforeseen circumstances. Please note that if you do choose to donate your race fees and Bucky's Race is rescheduled for a time later this year your donation can go towards the registration fee for that race. If you would like to donate your registration fee, please select this option. 

We understand. We hope you can join us next time! Thank you for your continued support of the UW-Madison Doctor of Physical Therapy Student Organization.

Bucky's Race for Rehab is a traditional 5K run/walk and 3K wheel/walk that encourages participation from community members of all backgrounds and abilities! This event sponsored by the UW-Madison Doctor of Physical Therapy Department serves as a fundraiser for our Pro Bono Clinic, Anatomy Body Donor Ceremony, and professional development funds. Every sponsorship, contribution, and registration helps support many different activities and needs of our students. Those needs include:

  • New rehabilitation equipment for our student-run Pro Bono clinic, which serves individuals with neurological conditions who otherwise would not have access to PT care
  • Donations to the UW-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health Body Donor Ceremony, which honors the individuals who so generously and selflessly donated, providing valuable educational opportunities for our students in the UW Anatomy Labs
  • Professional development funds for sending our students to conferences and educational courses, where they get valuable hands-on experience and unique learning and leadership opportunities
  • Purchasing necessary supplies for our Global Health Trips where PT students immerse themselves by volunteering with the children in the local community

Registration package: includes a race bib, T-shirt, post-race snack, and a raffle ticket for awesome prizes! Come join us for some fun, support a great cause, and hang out with Bucky Badger!
