Body Gears Plunges It Forward

As a leader in physical therapy and a leading provider of Functional Manual Therapy™, Body Gears strives to improve the lives of people through both enhancing human mechanics and giving back to the community.  This year, Body Gears will take the plunge by sponsoring the 16th Annual Chicago Polar Plunge benefiting Special Olympics Chicago.

“We are thrilled to be sponsoring the 2016 Polar Plunge,” stated Body Gears president and physical therapist April Oury. “We are always looking for ways to give back to the community and this opportunity really resonated with our staff. Everyone is excited about getting involved and giving back to an incredible organization that transforms the lives of people with disabilities.”

Special Olympics provides year-round sports training and competition in a variety of Olympic type of sports for children (ages 8 and older) and adults with mental disabilities or closely related developmental disabilities.

Body Gears is not only a sponsor — staff, patients, friends and colleagues make up a team of over 40 plungers to participate in the Polar Plunge on March 6.
