Atlanta Falcons Physical Therapy Centers Partners with Camp Twin Lakes
Providing Life-Changing Camp Experiences
Camp Twin Lakes (CTL) is pleased to announce a new partnership with the Atlanta Falcons Physical Therapy Centers (AFPTC). Through a generous grant from AFPTC, campers facing serious illnesses, disabilities, and other life challenges will enjoy a life-changing, medically-supportive camp experience at Camp Twin Lakes.
AFPTC has committed to support Spin For Kids, a charitable mountain and road bike ride benefiting CTL on October 20 – 21 in Winder and Rutledge, GA, which is the home of CTL’s two fully-accessible and medically-supportive campsites.
Atlanta Falcons General Manager Thomas Dimitroff will ride in Spin For Kids as a member of the Atlanta Falcons Physical Therapy Centers team. “I am proud to ride in this cycling event representing the Atlanta Falcons and all ten of our Centers across Georgia. I hope the community will join our Atlanta Falcons Physical Therapy Centers team to support this great cause for our youth.”
“Giving back is very important to us,” said Greg Beadles, President of AFPTC and CFO of the Atlanta Falcons. “This partnership was formed thanks to the input of our team and The Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation. Supporting children with life challenges is a cause we all wanted to rally behind with AFPTC Cares program this year, and we look forward to a fun and impactful event.”
“Camp Twin Lakes has been able to experience tremendous growth in the number of campers served over the years because of generous support from individuals, foundations, and corporations,” said Eric M. Robbins, Executive Director of Camp Twin Lakes. “The Blank Family of Businesses do so much for the greater Atlanta community, and we are so fortunate to have the opportunity to partner with the Atlanta Falcons Physical Therapy Centers on this event. Camp Twin Lakes and the Atlanta Falcons Physical Therapy Centers both work hard to show people just what they are capable of achieving. The opportunity to invest together in Georgia’s children facing serious illnesses and life challenges compliments our respective work perfectly.”
