BENEFITING: LIMBS FOR LIFE FOUNDATION
EVENT DATE: Sep 19, 2015
Joseph lost his right leg on Jul 21, 2012 due to flesh eating bacteria which he contracted while fishing in the Gulf. Funny thing...he never even went in the water,he just splashed some water on his shoe. In 2013 on July 21, the 1 year anniversary of his amputation… Joseph decided to make a positive out of a negative, thus the first ever Limbs for Life Bridge Walk on the Gulf Coast. Not only was this an important fundraising event for LFL, but it also commemorated Joseph’s victorious survival of a catastrophic life altering event. Now, it is Joe's mission to continue to support Limbs for Life and their mission in providing prosthetics to people who can not afford them both nationally and internationally.
