2014 Cavallo Hustle For Your Health
The Program in Physical Therapy invites you to participate in the 2014 Cheryl Cavallo Hustle for Your Health 5K Run/1 mile Walk. This event is memory of Cheryl Cavallo, a long time faculty member in the Program in Physical Therapy who lost her courageous battle to cancer in 2013. Cheryl Cavallo received her bachelors, masters, and doctoral degrees from Saint Louis University and was a member of the faculty for 32 years, retiring in 2011. She served as faculty mentor for the Program in Physical Therapy Student Council for 22 years and tirelessly coordinated this event for 11 years. She lived the Jesuit mission everyday by giving back to those less fortunate.
The Cheryl L. Cavallo Memorial Scholarship was established to honor Cheryl's passion and lifetime commitment to the education of her students in the Jesuit tradition. The award was established to assist physical therapy students defray travel costs for health care related service.
"Treat people with care and respect, give comfort, and especially ensure their dignity. If we do this, the world will be a better place."
