Tournament of Roses® Parade

OTAC is thrilled to report that on September 10, 2015, the Tournament of Roses® Executive Committee accepted the Occupational Therapy Centennial Float as an official entry in the 2017 Annual Tournament of Rose® Parade that will be held on Monday, January 2, 2017. This unprecedented initiative honors the 100th Anniversary of the occupational therapy profession, including the 350,000 occupational therapy practitioners and millions of consumers world-wide. The Tournament of Roses® Parade is one of the largest social rituals in the world, with over 50 million television viewers around the globe, over 700,000 attendees along the parade route, and another 60,000 viewers of the float display post-parade. The official Tournament of Roses® website receives over 3.6 million views during the months leading up to parade day. Over 80 media organizations cover the Rose Parade live, and media coverage is extensive during the days prior to the event. The Tournament of Roses® Parade is, undoubtedly, an opportunity for the profession of occupational therapy to become ‘widely recognized and globally connected.’ To support the costs of float design and construction $300,000 needs to be raised. OTAC has several fund-raising strategies already in place, but we need your help! Here is what you can do TODAY to help ensure the profession of occupational therapy achieves its Centennial Vision of becoming ‘widely recognized and globally connected’: • DONATE TODAY at
