Arkhan’s Getting a Leg

$1,265 of $3,000 goal

Raised by 36 people in 14 days
Arkhan was born with a deformity in his leg that resulted in an amputation.  His insurance only pays for a new leg every 3 years.  He’s growing faster than that, but he never backs down from a challenge. As a result, he’s taught himself how to CAD design and 3D scan and 3D print his own leg.  His perseverance and growth as a student and as a person is nothing short of incredible.  However, the model he created has limitations.  He can’t use it to play sports or even really run.  

An organization called 50Legs based in Orlando, FL is stepping up to make that dream come true for him.  They have chosen to fly Arkhan and his family to Orlando for a week and provide him with not one but 2 prosthetic legs.  One will be an everyday leg and one will be an athletic leg so he can play sports and dance again.  While they are paying for airfare and medical expenses, his family will need financial support for food and rental car as well as missed work time.  We would also love to send him to Disney while he is there.   I’ve never met a more inspiring or more deserving young man.  He is so full of life and makes everyone around him smile every single day.  Other than a trip to Oklahoma, Arkhan has never left Northwest Arkansas.  Please help 50Legs provide him with this life changing opportunity.

I can’t thank each of you enough for your contributions to Arkhan. As his teacher, it is humbling to see so many people come together for such an incredible young man. With Arkhan and his family scheduled to leave on the 24th, I will be setting up withdrawals soon, and given that this is my first time using this service I want to be completely transparent in this process. I will be personally withdrawing the funds and purchasing all Disney tickets for his family, reserving rental car services, and loading any funds we raise onto a pre-paid Visa card for food and expenses they encounter on this trip. I also wanted to update you with some amazing news! Thanks to Springdale Today and the publications team from Springdale Public Schools, we will all get to experience this trip with him! They are sending a film crew with him to cover the story from the flight to fittings to the Animal Kingdom. I can’t wait to see how the film comes out! It will be special!! I am so proud of Arkhan and his family for making this journey and a special THANK YOU to 50Legs and POA for making this young man’s dream come true!!!!! Thank you for your contributions so far. Keep them coming!
