Help me run with Running Blades

$345 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 7 people in 16 months
Hi everyone. I have recently become a below-knee amputee, but been a bilateral amputee since 2001. I am an adaptive runner. I had been training and running races since my discharge from hospital. I ran my first race one month after being discharged, which has shocked everyone. My goal is to participate in a full marathon next year (2018) but I will need running my blades to do that.

I have applied for a grant to get a pair of running blades through the Challenged Athlete Foundation (CAF). However, I still need to raise funds for fabrication of my sockets. This where I need your help. I need special sockets that the blades are attached to. Any help is appreciated. $5, $10, $20, $50, etc. Please share and spread the word as well

Hello everyone!

Just a quick update. The 2018 Team CAF was announced yesterday and I am exited to share that I am one of the recipients of Ossür Cheetah Blades.

Thank you for your donations. Keep ‘em coming as I still need funds to pay for the sockets that they go on and start training.

Please share with your friends. I’m still quite a way to reach my goal.

I've applied for a grant to get a pair of Ossür running blades through the Challenged Athlete Foundation (CAF). I'm crossing my fingers that I get approved for them, which will be great. However, I still need to raise funds to cover the cost of materials and labour to fabricate my sockets (legs for the blades to be attached).

Please share with your network. Thank You.
