GoRed for Women’s Health
On the first Friday of February each year, the staff of HARTZ Physical Therapy wears red to work and donates money in support of Women’s Heart Health. For more information, visit www.goredforwomen.org.
As a provider in the local medical community, Brian Hartz firmly believes in staying healthy through exercise and encourages his staff to do the same. As a result, many members of the HARTZ Physical Therapy staff routinely participate in local runs and walks which raise money for charity. Participation is sponsored by HARTZ Physical Therapy, allowing employees to bond outside of work and stay in shape at the same time.
