A note from Russ Horbal to SPC-MB members:

Dear Sport Physiotherapy Manitoba Members,

Thank you to the Executive and the membership for honouring me with the inaugural SPC Membership Award. I was very moved and humbled by this recognition. Becoming a sports physiotherapist and my community and professional involvement was a labour of love and very fulfilling in itself. So, being recognized with this award is overwhelming. Hopefully my involvement gives you motivation to continue to be involved yourselves and to have a blast doing it like I did.Sincerely,
Russ Horbal
Sport Physiotherapist
