3rd Annual Walk-A-Thon
Saturday, April 16th in Landa Park the 3rd Annual Walk-A-Thon took place. Get Your Limb On Support Group is an all-volunteer, non profit organization for amputee support. Their mission is to actively support and encourage those affected by amputation or limb difference. They host meetings to provide a place for sharing experiences, asking and answering questions and discussing resources available for emotional and personal healing. Vendors come by and discuss what they can offer for more adaptive ways to live life to the fullest.
