The Special Olympics of New Jersey FUNFitness program happens every summer and MaryLou Jani and Meghan Dilley are at the forefront leading groups of volunteer students and PTs.  They’ve been coordinating this effort for years which is why APTANJ is proud to present MaryLou and Meghan with the 2019 Pediatric Special Interest Award and Community Service Award respectively.  They will each receive their award(s) at APTANJ’s Annual Awards Program sponsored by JAG-ONE Physical Therapy on Saturday evening, October 19 at the National Conference Center in East Windsor, NJ.


Mary Lou Jani

With 46 years of experience working with children, MaryLou has a wide range of clinical skills which have served her well in a variety of practice settings.  She is certified in Neurodevelopmental Treatment (NDT), having completed the Pediatrics and Baby Treatment courses.  She has also received board certification as a Pediatric Clinical Specialist (PCS) from the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialists (ABPTS).  MaryLou has also served as a Clinical Director for FUNfitness, APTA's collaborative effort with Special Olympics, helping to coordinate the program at 2 National Games, and the annual New Jersey Summer Games. 



Meghan Dilley

Meghan graduated with a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Rutgers School of Health Professions, (formerly The University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey) in 2009 and has worked at St. Joseph’s Health in multiple disciplines, including acute care, inpatient rehab, and the outpatient setting following graduation, with most of my time currently spent in the outpatient setting.  Her commitment to volunteering for Special Olympics New Jersey dates all the way back to her time in middle school where she worked with athletes at basketball games at Fairleigh Dickinson University.  At the end of her first year of physical therapy school she began volunteering at Special Olympics FUNFitness and today serves as a clinical director of the program.


MaryLou and Meghan’s commitment to the physical therapy profession, volunteerism and the great state of New Jersey are all reasons why they are being honored by the APTANJ.
