Your Real Champion®: “Positively Pat” Dr. Marianne T. Ritchie
Pat Croce embodies the concept of positivity. He transformed the practice of Physical Therapy by treating every patient like they were a professional athlete. His enthusiasm was contagious and as patients healed, they committed to becoming fitness warriors. His method became the brand of the Flyers for 13 years and the 76ers for 10 years. After selling his 40 fitness centers, he became President and part-owner of the 76ers, using his “I can” attitude to lead his team to the playoffs and unite the city behind them. Now he is using his ‘core strength’ to fight his battle with cancer and invites other cancer patients to join his new team.
Each week, we highlight the Real Champions in your life! Your family, friends, or colleagues who go the extra mile to help others in their community.
