Paying it forward for Mount Nittany Health Fit for Play


Jim and Lorri Bennett

When you believe strongly in an organization and its mission, it can be an easy decision to give back. And that’s exactly why Jim and Lorri Bennett created a department-specific fund for Mount Nittany Health Fit for Play.

“Fit for Play has been a big part of our lives over the past 18 years. We truly believe in the treatment philosophy and the people who provide the care,” says Jim Bennett, MPT, clinical director for outpatient services, Mount Nittany Health Fit for Play.

Fit for Play provides one-on-one physical therapy to members of our region. This unique approach maximizes treatment time at every visit, reduces or eliminates pain, and helps patients return to normal activities faster. Additionally, Fit for Play offers a full fitness center experience including cardiovascular equipment, weight training machines and free weights.

“It is important to us that Mount Nittany Health Fit for Play has the resources it needs to continue providing excellent care to the people of this community. We believe the fund can be used to help further that mission.”

According to the Matt Hardy, CFRE, executive director, Mount Nittany Health Foundation, there are currently 80 funds that have been established for departments such as diabetes education, pediatrics, radiation oncology, and more. Funds provide the resources needed for educational opportunities and equipment updates to support the advancement of healthcare at Mount Nittany Health.

“We have been very fortunate to live and raise our children in such a great community,” shares Bennett. “It’s our honor and privilege to give back to it.”

If you would like to make a gift to support Mount Nittany Health Fit for Play or a department that has impacted your Mount Nittany Health experience, please contact the Foundation at 814.234.6777.
