: 4th Annual Walk & Roll for Mobility Raises $1200 for the Voluntary Action Center


DEKALB – The fourth annual Walk & Roll for Mobility held in September was another great success! Two independent physical therapy clinics, Northern Rehab Physical Therapy Specialists and Creative Therapeutics, teamed together to kick off National Physical Therapy Month and hosted a 1.5 mile walk along the DeKalb Nature Trail to encourage our community to be active while supporting the Voluntary Action Center of DeKalb County.  “We are happy to support the Voluntary Action Center as the recipient of this annual fundraiser because their various programs support the needs in our community” comments Lynn Batalden of Creative Therapeutics. This is the fourth year of this event with over 65 participants walking, rolling, strolling and riding along the trail on a beautiful and warm fall morning. Ken Olson of Northern Rehab adds, “We are pleased to present the Voluntary Action Center with a check for $1,200.00 to help support their community programs such as Meals on Wheels, TransVAC and MedVAC.” Pictured here (left to right) includes Voluntary Action Center’s Dispatch Manager Alonzo Owens, Community Outreach Coordinator Colleen Bredeson, and Executive Director Ellen Rogers; Lynn Batalden, Physical Therapist and owner of Creative Therapeutics and Mark Mattson, Marketing Director and co-owner of Creative Therapeutics; and Ken Olson, President and Physical Therapist at Northern Rehab Physical Therapy Specialists, and Melissa Beck, Physical Therapist at Northern Rehab.
