EVENT: NYC Half 2012

EVENT DATE: Mar 18, 2012

THE STORY:

Crutches 4 Kids mission is to provide crutches to children in need around the world!

In developing countries, where mobility is essential to daily life, disabled children are often relegated to lives of loneliness and stigmatization. Unable to attend school and participate fully in family and community life, they lose self-esteem and become vulnerable to abuse.

To these children, a pair of crutches can be everything.

A pair of crutches can enable a child to rejoin their friends in the classroom and on the playground, participate more in family routines, and ultimately better engage in their societies. In so doing, it can give them back a sense of dignity, independence, and hope.

While crutches, especially child-sized, can be a rare and precious commodity in developing countries, hundreds of thousands of such crutches are languishing in closets, garages and storage spaces in our neighborhoods

Crutches 4 Kids is committed to recycling these unused crutches. We work in partnership with a network of concerned citizens and well-established humanitarian organizations to collect and distribute child and adult sized crutches, improving the lives of thousands of children around the world.
