On May 15th, ProEx staff joined hundreds of runners and walkers at the Lincoln School in Exeter, NH for a good cause; to raise money for the Exeter Elementary PTO. ProEx Staff, Jess McManus, PT and Sarah Keyser, MSPT, CSCS led a group of over 300 children in a pre-race stretch and warm-up. "We had a fantastic time with the kids," noted Sarah. "Our goal was to teach everyone something specific about stretching and have fun at the same time. I think we achieved that."
At the ProEx table, additional staff evaluated injured runners and offered treatment options for their injury. All participants were also given the option to have a physical therapist provide a manual stretch before and after the race.
"Our staff had a great time today. We always like to spend a day in the community and offer some suggestions and education on how to prevent injuries," said Jess McManus. "We are looking forward to coming back next year."
