3rd Annual Optimus Prosthetics 5k

May 20, 2017 10am @ Eastwood Metro Park

The 3rd annual event will a 5k with the 1 mile option. This year there will be food trucks, fun games for the whole family and a live band. 

Our goal is to help send amputee children to summer camp. This summer camp is specifically designed for children with limb loss differences to attend. The camp is called: the Amputee Coalition Paddy Rossbach Youth Camp. The camp is for kids aged 10-17 and it’s located in Clarksville, Ohio. The mission of the camp is to make a difference in the lives of children with limb loss and limb difference by increasing their self-confidence and self-esteem through a traditional and supportive summer camp experience.

Each year, the Amputee Coalition Paddy Rossbach Youth Camp provides fun and exciting sports, recreation and social activities for campers. The camp experience includes a variety of activities such as a fully accessible ropes course where every child can set his or her own personal level of challenge. Peer discussion groups facilitated by older campers and amputee mentors help our young campers learn that they are not alone.
