Robert Babb, president and owner of the Physical Therapy & Wellness Institute (PTW), recently received this year’s “President’s Award” from the Chamber of Commerce for Greater Montgomery County.
The award was presented at the 58th Annual Dinner & Awards Celebration, held at Pine Crest Country Club, according to a media release from PTW.
Chambers President Pam Kelly states, “After receiving this gift from Bob and the staff to support the Chambers Community Health and Youth Foundation (CHYF), our reactions could not have been any different. I learned that Bob was disappointed with the donation from the proceeds that PTW had raised through the Broad Street ReRun, while here at the Chamber, we were elated to be able to send six high school kids off to a business mentorship retreat as a result of PTW’s work with the Broad Street ReRun.”
The Chambers CHYF was organized to collaborate with the business community in fostering programs and activities which target education and wellness to enhance the quality of life in the greater Montgomery County area, with the foundation of education, literacy, and health, the release states.
“It has been an honor to work with the chamber for many years,” says Babb, in receiving the award. “The work that we do together is mutually beneficial. We are in constant pursuit of great customer experiences, a great company culture, all while staying active in our communities. These goals are achieved in many ways through our work with the Chamber.”
“We had a chance to talk to the high school students about their one-week business retreat, and what they had learned,” he continues. “One student said he learned to operate all day on 3 hours of sleep, another said he wanted to be a business CEO in the future. We learned how this intensive training had helped them sort out their career goals.”
“The retreat becomes the added value and meaning of the Broad Street ReRun for not just the PTW staff that organizes it, but all the volunteers and runners to know their participation is making a difference in our community. Our intention is to triple our proceeds in 2018, so consider lacing up now and getting ready for this great run on South Broad Street in Lansdale on May 19th next year,” he states.
Physical Therapy & Wellness Institute comprises seven locations in the Pennsylvania area.
