The NATA Foundation champions research, supports education, and enhances knowledge
to optimize the clinical experience and outcomes within the diverse patient populations
served by the athletic training profession.
2020 has definitely been a "different year"!
Due to the pandemic and in-person events being cancelled, we haven't had the opportunity
to celebrate the athletic training profession all together in person.
However - we can still celebrate the AT profession together............virtually.
Please join athletic trainers, family and friends of the AT profession for our first ever "virtual" 5K. Whether you are an elite runner, one that measures their time by sun dial, or someone that enjoys walking, this event is for everyone and designed to "get you moving" while supporting the NATA Foundation and advancing the AT profession.
