Adventist HealthCare Rehabilitation’s Sixth Annual Amputee Awareness 5K Walk, Wheel or Run fundraising and limb loss awareness event gets underway, virtually, Saturday, April 24. Join the opening ceremony online at 10:00 a.m. at AdventistHealthCare.com/amputee5k.
Historically operating as an in-person patient, community and supporter event at a local Rockville high school, COVID-19 continues to create a different reality. Adventist HealthCare Rehabilitation’s Foundation and Amputee Program teams decided to move forward with a virtual option because nothing stops their determination to help patients with amputations get back to living more independent and full lives. The Amputee Awareness 5K Walk, Wheel or Run was established in April 2015, during Amputee Awareness Month, to publicly acknowledge the countless challenges people with limb loss face and help provide financial assistance to Adventist HealthCare Rehabilitation patients who do not have the means to pay for crucial medical necessities.
Since then, the Amputee 5k has raised over $130,000 in donations that have directly funded patients’ home modifications, agile wheelchairs, prosthetics, and more, helping them get moving again and regain their physical independence.
