What is the PA Olympics? - PA Olympics is a yearly fundraising campaign that was started in 2003 by Michael Huber, MMS, PA-C, DFAAPA. Each year, PA programs in the Greater Philadelphia region go head-to-head to raise money for a local community-based organization. The competition culminates this year on April 10th. Due to the pandemic, this year’s campaign is a little different from previous years. In the past, students from each program would come together for a day of medically themed sports activities to raise awareness for the chosen organization. This year, the theme is “The Great Race,” where each program will compete in a scavenger hunt throughout the city of Philadelphia.
The PA programs that participated were Arcadia University, DeSales University, Drexel University, Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, Salus University, Temple University, and Thomas Jefferson University – Center City, East Falls and Voorhees, NJ campuses.
Since the event’s inception in 2003, over $167,000 has been raised for various local organizations including For Pete’s Sake (2020), IM ABLE Foundation (2019), Miracle League (2018), VAST -Valley Against Sex Trafficking (2017), and the Mazzoni Center (2016).
