Oak Brook, IL (PRWeb) May 1, 2009-- AthletiCo, an Illinois-based leader in physical therapy, fitness, and performance services, recently supported Global Medical Brigades on a medical mission trip to Honduras. Global Medical Brigades, a sector of Global Brigades, is an international student-operated volunteer organization whose mission is to provide sustained healthcare relief to underserved communities throughout the world.

During the week of April 11, twenty-six AthletiCo employees and nine additional local healthcare providers traveled to Honduras and provided medical services to four rural communities treating close to 900 patients. The group also worked on improving living conditions in the communities by building two stoves, one latrine, and one water storage unit.

AthletiCo supported this medical mission trip by holding a medical supply drive in January at all of its physical therapy centers in Illinois. Various medications, soap, shampoo, toothbrushes, and even eyeglasses were collected and distributed to the patients and communities in Honduras. In addition, AthletiCo and its employees contributed $7,516 toward purchasing additional medical supplies and helping to offset the volunteer costs of the trip.
