From April to August every year, the Foundation hosts pre-participation sports physicals for area high schools. Our physicians, physician assistants, physical therapists, athletic trainers and OOC staff donate their time to provide these services.
On average, there are more than 18 high school physical events benefiting 2,000+ Orange and Seminole students thanks to 350 volunteer hours donated by Orlando Orthopaedic Center employees, physicians and physician assistants.
The Foundation ensures the events, materials and staff are free to participating schools. The schools typically charge a small fee for each physical to offset budget shortfalls within their athletic departments. All funds raised go to the schools’ athletic departments. Many of the students would not be able to afford these necessary sports screenings if it weren’t for the reduced costs offered at these events.
