Team ONS’ spirits were high at the BCA 5K.
Despite the rainy weather and cool temperatures, ONS orthopedic surgeons Marc S. Kowalsky, MD and Katherine B. Vadasdi, MD along with members of the ONS physical therapy department were in good form for the first annual Breast Cancer Awareness 5K run/1 mile walk. Team ONS ran, walked, (some did both) and manned the ONS sponsor’s table to greet fellow BCA supporters and educate them about the comprehensive orthopedic and neurosurgery services that are provided by the Women’s Sports Medicine Center at ONS. ONS Physical Therapy Manager, Alicia Hirscht, DPT, SCS, CSCS, led a pre-run warm up routine before the runners took to the wet but beautiful course which started on Mason Street. wound its way down Steamboat Road and through Bruce Park before returning to Richards 3.1 miles later. Many thanks to Dr. Kowalsky, Dr. Vadasdi, Alicia, Chalon Lefevbre, PT, LMT, Betsy Kreuter, PT, CLT, Tanya Kalyuzhny, DPT, MDT, Caitlin Yauch, PT, PT technicians Carolina Castillo and Kristin Sury, and PT front desk rep Rachel Olsen, for their enthusiastic support.
