EVENT DATE: Oct 12, 2015
In a little under a month, I will be representing the United States in the Military World Championship Games. I would like to dedicate this training block and the end races to an remarkable organization called One Leg Up On Life. The One Leg Up On Life Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Air Force Captain Christy Wise, medical student Jessica Wise, and Air Force Captain Tim Wiser (is this true? Is he a captain?). The purpose is to provide prosthetics for children in 3rd world countries. They have partnered with an orthopedic surgeon and a team of prosthetists that want to work with their team. Prosthetics are incredibly expensive, ranging from $10,000-$15,000 a piece. As children grow, they need to replace their prosthetics which can be a costly endeavor. Please consider a donation; any amount is greatly appreciated!
