We are excited to plan our first fundraiser, a wine / beer tasting event to be held in the Fall of 2013. We are finalizing dates and the location, so please be sure to check back frequently for status updates.
The funds that we raise will help us to provide deserving children with the limbs they need to stay active and to … get moving!
In addition to collecting monetary funds, we are building a limb bank that will allow us to help families reduce the heavy costs of prosthesis by recycling parts from outgrown limbs. For children, prosthesis last anywhere from 6 months to a year, as adjustments are needed for their rapid growth. While many parts of the limbs are customized, there are some “standard” parts that can be taken from old limbs to make new ones.
