In January 2014, an all POA team of amputees with various levels of amputation will undertake an incredible challenge — they will bravely attempt to climb over 19,000 feet to the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro!!!! In doing so they hope to provide inspiration for other amputees and demonstrate that a disability doesn’t determine where you can go; it merely determines where your start. 🙂
Please consider helping this remarkable group of people, each one with an extraordinary story of survival and recovery, to accomplish this goal. They have a fundraising goal of $60K over the next 60 days!!! Please join us in supporting Team Leg-A-Manjaro… This dream can only be realized with your support!
