Now at 78, Paris continues to stay physically active practicing what he taught for years as a physical therapist and educator at the University of St. Augustine, the physical therapy school he founded.
When I first heard the news last fall that Dr. Paris was planning this ride, my immediate thought was, 'that sounds like such an epic adventure, count me in!'
Gravell: My husband and I plan to join Dr. Paris on April 21st for a 98-mile leg from Austin to Brenham, Texas. Gravell: First of all, I am really looking forward to meeting Dr. Paris, a true pioneer and phenomenal leader in advancing the interests of our profession. Optimally, that would be by registering to join Dr. Paris for a portion of his ride and in so doing, pledge to raise awareness and funds for the cause. I am fortunate that Dr. Paris' ride route will take him right through Austin because that makes it easy for me and anyone else in the Austin area, to join him for a day. However, I think that Dr. Paris would welcome any and all participants, whereby people could register and pledge to raise funds.
Dr. Stanley Paris to Ride for PT Research
February 29, 2016 12743757_10153882966909350_5650793142286770150_n Never known to shy away from a challenge, Dr. Paris is at it one more time. This time, his goal of raising awareness for physical therapy research is taking the form of a bicycle. Earlier this year, he announced his latest endeavor to organize a trek across the country to raise funds for the Foundation for Physical Therapy. While he did not bicycle all the way to California, Foundation Trustee, Stanley Paris, PT, PhD, FAPTA, FAAOMPT was on hand at the 2016 Combined Sections Meeting (CSM) in Anaheim, CA to promote his Ride for PT Research. "I am a firm believer in maintaining an active and productive lifestyle. said Dr. Paris with his bicycle displayed beside him at the Foundation booth. "This is your chance to be a part of something bigger, which is why you should join me in this great cause." CSM attendees rushed for the opportunity to meet Dr. Paris. He told Foundation booth visitors that he plans to ride from San Diego, CA to St. Augustine, FL - over 3,000 miles - in just 30 days. Dr. Paris was at CSM encouraging visitors to join him by riding across a state, for a day or a weekend, or to take on the ultimate challenge in riding the full route across America. Considering this could be quite difficult for some, Dr. Paris was reassuring and explained that they could still participate in promoting physical therapy research by simply donating in his or any other participating riders' honor. The ride will commence Friday, April 1, 2016. Paris is no stranger to using endurance challenges to benefit the Foundation. His 2009 English Channel swim and his two attempts to solo circumnavigate the globe in his sailboat, the Kiwi Spirit, raised over $150,000 in support of the Foundation.
