On Saturday, March 25th at Titlow Park A2 held its 2nd annual family 5k! The clouds opened up and gave us a break from the rain to gather with friends and partake in a memorable FUN RUN for MS! There was music, over 20 raffle prizes, TACOMA T-shirts and so many smiles! Thanks to our incredible sponsors, friends, family and patients -- we were able to hit our goal of 300 registrants and raised over $5,000 for people in our community with Multiple Sclerosis. Our goal at A2PT is to create a special program to be able to treat those with MS who are not able to afford it otherwise and give them access to the latest treatment technology.

"A2 staff are friendly and informative. All my questions and concerns were addressed. I looked forward to my appointments because even if I didn’t see my progress, because it was so gradual, the staff here made sure to celebrate every move forward. I thought I’d always have a limp/never recover fully, but I was wrong!"
"I started at A2 about mid-July and I am in the 9:00 am Friday class. A2 has opened me up to new levels of a workout. There is no “golden Standard”. Everyone goes to the best of their abilities. I feel like I can workout without being judged. In my class there are my mom, dad, aunt Lori, aunt Amber, my cousin Mandy and our newest addition Randy. Kristi is always encouraging us to give our all. She is never telling us that we aren’t doing the workout right. Instead she helps us grow by kindly telling us if we do it this way we will get more out of it and she always helps us get there. I decided to do cross country this year and I feel like I can go and be successful and strong because of my A2 workout. Thank you so much for helping me grow in my health."
"Clear, communicative staff that showed great motivation in helping me return to my return to my recreational work and athletic activities Danny is super knowledgeable and had a strong sense of intuition in helping me identify and overcome my limitations. I’ve made an excellent recovery from a critical injury thanks to A2 and am now back to my usual flow."
