BENEFITING: LIMBS FOR LIFE FOUNDATION
Come out and participate in a 5k race to support the Limbs for Life Foundation! Limbs for Life is a global nonprofit organization that assists amputees that do not have the money or insurance to cover the cost of a prosthetic. There are over 4 million existing amputees in the United States and each year there becomes about 150,000 more amputees due to disease, accidents, birth defects, warfare and other causes. Prosthetic limbs help these amputees return to their everyday life and continue with the activities that they love to do. Unfortunately the cost of prosthetics is very high and a lot of people cannot afford them. The Limbs for Life organization provides and assists many amputees in getting an affordable prosthetic limb that can help them get back to their lives. Limbs for Life has provided more than 2,000 new prosthetic limbs to amputees across the United States, and more than 10,000 used prosthetic components to amputees on four continents.
