Did you know that insurance companies only fund functional prosthetics and will not assist in adapted sports equipment? Angel would like to receive running blades and an application to the Challeneged Athletes Foundation (CAF) is working to give him a grant for two running blades at a cost of $15,000 each. But CAF will not be able to fund the things that he needs to go with the running blades. This is where you come in! We are trying to raise $20,000 for new molds for the prosthetics. He will also need to be fitted for liners and sleeves for the prosthetics. The liner are for helping the stumps from getting sores and sleeves are for helping to fit to the prothetic. He will probably be fitted with or without a knee joint. The better handware come with articulating knee via a computer to help assist in the gate.
We are hoping that you can donate from your heart and get 20 friends to donate at least $20.00. With love all around, I'm sure we will meet the goal of $20,000. for Angel to get his running blades from Challenged Athletes Foundation.
Challenged Athletes Foundation believes, "No challenged is too great with the right support. That's why our goal is to provide physically challenged people with the tools they need to pursue active and healthy lifestyles. We advocate for all levels of physical activity as a way to enhance quality of life for all."
Let's help this Saint at Santa Ana High School to run like everyone else.
