JAG-ONE Physical Therapy teamed up with Princeton Athletics to donate some holiday cheer with Teddy Bears for the Greater Somerset County YMCA
Bridgewater, NJ (January 25, 2023): JAG-ONE Physical Therapy is one of the fastest growing comprehensive physical and occupational therapy practices providing rehabilitative care to patients and sports teams in over 110 locations across the Northeast. JAG-ONE Physical Therapy teamed up with Princeton Athletics to give back this holiday season. Together, both JAG-ONE Physical Therapy and Princeton Athletics are thrilled to announce a donation of over 200 teddy bears for the Children of Greater Somerset County YMCA. The teddy bear toss took place during Men’s Hockey vs. Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute on December 10, Women’s Basketball vs. University of Delaware on December 11, and Men’s Basketball vs. Kean University on December 23.
The teddy bear toss is an infamous holiday season promotion that encourages fans to throw stuffed toys onto the court or rink whenever their team scores their first goal of the game. JAG-ONE Physical Therapy and Princeton Athletics selected the YMCA to be a recipient of the teddy bears because of their mission of strengthening community by connecting all people to their potential, purpose and each other. JAG-ONE Physical Therapy hopes to continue to help the YMCA to build a better tomorrow. This holiday season, JAG-ONE Physical Therapy and Princeton Athletics exceeded their previous donation and encouraged fans to donate new or lightly used stuffed animals at the halftime toss.
“It is so important for us to be advocates of YMCA, a leading nonprofit committed to strengthening individuals and communities across the country. This holiday season we hope to bring a sense of normalcy in the lives of children with these teddy bears. We look forward to working alongside YMCA and Princeton Athletics to help make a true difference in the lives of the Greater Somerset County community,” says John Gallucci Jr., CEO of JAG-ONE Physical Therapy.
“At Greater Somerset County YMCA, we believe that everyone—no matter who they are or where they’re from—deserves the opportunity and the resources necessary to reach their full potential. Being a part of this year's Teddy Bear Toss was just another stride to our goal to improve overall health and well-being, ignite youth empowerment, inspire action, and demonstrate the importance of connections in and across the communities we serve,” said Bobby Dobra, YMCA Membership and Wellness Director.
