Join the American Hand Therapy Foundation (AHTF) for our 9th Annual Virtual Run/Walk to support upper extremity research and education! This virtual event will be held during the Hand Therapy Week, on June 8-15, 2024.

This important event brings together the community of surgeons, therapists, patients and supporters to raise awareness of the upper extremity rehabilitation specialty, and support the AHTF research and education grants.

You may register individually or create/join a team! We encourage everyone to share photos for the AHTF social media pages.

Grab your friends and colleagues and complete a 5K walk or run prior to the end of Hand Therapy Week!
