In the Jesuit traditions of the pursuit of truth, development of the whole person, and commitment to service and justice, our community – faculty, staff, and students – prepares doctors of physical therapy who provide reflective, person-centered care that is interprofessional and evidenced-based.

The Cheryl Cavallo Hustle for your Health is an annual event held during Saint Louis University's Homecoming and Family Weekend. For 2021 it was virtual to ensure those in the SLU family who wanted to participate could, despite travel restrictions or other barriers.
PY3 Students Caroline Sauer and Emily Chisolm
Participants ran at a time and place convenient for them, submitting their results by Saturday, September 25, 2021. Thank you to the Physical Therapy Student Association for their organization of the event but the event would not have been successful without all who signed up. Check out the photos of students and other SLU community members participating virtually. Hope to see you in 2022.
SLU staff member Kristin Hrasky
The Annual Hustle for Your Health 5K helps support the Cheryl L. Cavallo Memorial Scholarship Fund in memory of Cheryl Cavallo, a long time faculty member in the Program in Physical Therapy who lost her courageous battle to cancer in 2013. She served as the faculty mentor for the Program in Physical Therapy Student Council (now the Physical Therapy Student Association) for 22 years and tirelessly coordinated this event for 11 years. She lived the Jesuit mission every day by giving back to those less fortunate.
