Marathon is Complete!

November 06, 2017

Wow! Thank you everyone who has donated to support Global Health Outreach. Yesterday Tom has completed his part of The Outreach Mission and ran the Bass Pro Half Marathon! Tom and his daughter completed it in 2 hours, 17 minutes. 

The giving page will be open until this Sunday. THANK YOU so much for helping us gather $10,000 to be given to Global Health Outreach. These fundraising efforts have allowed us to officially open our endowment fund and begin using the interest to help fund Global Health Outreach teams. Your gifts will literally be recycled over and over again as we scrape interest off the top of the fund each year. 

Our original goal was $20,000 with 200 donors. We raised over $10,000 with just 50 donors! We would love to see more alumni and friends pull together to raise that number of donors! Let's see what we can do in this final week of The Outreach Mission.

One Week Left!

October 30, 2017

Tom has one final push for you all! Lets see as many donors as we can participate in The Outreach Mission. During the past few months we have seen so many of our Alumni come together to share stories and memories with Tom and each other!

In just 6 days Tom will be running his half marathon. Help him push through to the end and do your part to give!

Student Physical Therapy Association Blows us Away!

October 27, 2017

Last Friday, the Student Physical Therapy Association at SBU hosted a Trivia Night Fundraiser for The Outreach Mission. They raised $1,200!

What an amazing job by our students. We are so blessed to have students an Alumni with a heart for service and a passion to give back to others!

Tom's marathon is just over a week away! Help us reach our goal of $20,000 by donating whatever you can. Remember, this endowment fund will be used for years to come! Your gifts generate the interest used to help fund our outreach teams with Global Health Outreach. Our next team leaves for Peru over Thanksgiving break. Please keep them in your prayers!

Less than 4 weeks to go!

October 10, 2017

Thank you so much for all of your support. We love hearing stories from alumni about mission trips they have been on, and we have loved getting old photos from past PT Mission Teams! Keep sending them our way if you have some!

This weekend Tom and his daughter ran in the Panther Run at Drury University. This was a 10k that they finished in 61 minutes! Preparations are going well. Let's help Tom meet his goal in raising funds for the Global Health Outreach Endowment.

Tomorrow at the Davis Physical Therapy Building we are having a flag ceremony to commission our November 2017 Peru team! This team will leave just a few weeks after Tom's big race. Please keep this team in your prayers as they raise support and get ready to spend a week serving together.

Tom needs a Gait Analysis

September 28, 2017

Tom's race is less than 6 weeks away, and he's having trouble keeping his times where he wants them to be! We have shared a video below of a recent practice run. Head on over to our Facebook page at to help Tom with a gait analysis and offer him some advice! He's got a lot of work to do if he's going to finish this half marathon!

We are almost to 20% of our goal! Don't forget to donate to support Global Health Outreach teams. Every little bit helps! Just click on the gift suggestions to the right or use the big donate button above!

September 20th - 18% of our Goal!

September 20, 2017

Thanks for helping us get this far! We have a long way to go and just 45 days left! Keep following our Facebook page at to see update's about Tom's training and Global Health Outreach teams!

How is Tom doing? Well, He's training hard. Rain or shine Tom and his daughter have been preparing for this half-marathon! This weekend they ran 7.3 miles in the rain, taking a little more than half the time they project to spend running the half marathon!

Be sure to share this page with your Alumni friends, and share your stories from being in class with Tom or going on Mission trips with the Physical Therapy Department! We love to reminisce with you and see how SBU Physical Therapy has created a family of alumni who share our mission.

Half Marathon

Tom's going to run 13.1 miles on November 5th! Donate a dollar for every mile he runs.


Metric Half Marathon

If imperial measurements aren't your thing, Tom will be running 21.1 kilometers on November 5th! Donate a dollar for every kilometer he runs.


Alumni Challenge

If 200 alumni donate $100 each, we will reach our goal!


History Buff

The Battle of Marathon was in 490 BC. It's at this event where the first marathon occurred. This runner exclaimed, "we have won!" as he burst into the assembly that marked his finish line. Help Tom shout the same thing as he finishes his race!



The Department of Physical therapy has 756 alumni who have graduated since 1998! Give a dollar for every alumni who has attended a lecture with Tom Sneed.


Gold Alumni Challenge

If 20 alumni gave $1000, we would reach our goal!


Airfare to Brazil

This amount could cover a flight to Brazil for a trip participant! Our next Brazil mission is in March of 2018.


First Mission Trip

Our first SBU DPT Mission team was sent to India in 1998! Since then, countless, students, volunteers, and patients have been impacted by this ministry. Help us continue to expand the impact of Global Health Outreaches!



This amount is 20% of our $20,000 goal for Tom's 20th SBU anniversary. If just five alumni give at this level, our goal will be reached!
