Miles for Mobility
Hello fam, friends and strangers! This fall, I'm running the Philly marathon. I'm dedicating these miles to ALTSO so that other kids can run marathons and play sports and gain independent mobility.
It is nearly impossible for children with limb disabilities in developing countries to attend school or participate in every day activities. A Leg To Stand On (ALTSO) is a charity working to close the vast gap in care provided to children whose families can vs. can't afford treatment.
An NYC-based non-profit organization, ALTSO brings free prosthetics and orthopedic care to children and young adults with limb disabilities in the developing world. Their goal is to provide high-quality continuous care until the age of 21 for all patients treated under ALTSO’s program. Since 2003, through local treatment providers in Asia, Africa and Latin America, ALTSO has provided free orthopedic care to more than 17,000 children in need.
Please join me in backing this incredibly important cause! Below you can find details about what your donation would provide for a child in need in the developing world.
