Mission

Laps for Limbs Inc is an ability-focused, community-oriented, non-profit organization that raises awareness and funds for local children and veterans with limb loss and limb differences.

Our main Laps for Limbs event promotes accessibility and inclusion, open to people of all abilities and ages. This walk/run/roll event creates community advocacy for amputees, in a family-friendly environment, while raising funds to promote improved quality of life. 

    Laps for Limbs Model: Awareness + Inclusion + Community = Opportunity

We strive to:

Raise awareness and funds for veterans and children with limb loss and limb differences, in order to improve their quality of life and promote participation in recreation and meaningful experiences.

Promote inclusion and bring communities together, through increased awareness of the ABILITY in disability and ways we can empower one another to reach our full potential and goals. Funds raised promote improved community and home accessibility, increased availability of adaptive equipment for everyday living, and increased availability of adaptive equipment for participation in recreation and sport.

We create opportunity, one step at a time (literally!). 

As we grow, Laps for Limbs Inc. is dedicated to maintaining transparency and sharing it’s mission in support of amputees.

Events

The main fundraising event for the organization is the "Laps for Limbs" event. This event is a walk/run/roll that takes place at a track. Unlike a typical road race such as a 5K or marathon, the track provides an accessible environment that keeps everyone together, regardless of pace or physical ability. Participants complete as many laps as they can, and raise funds per lap by soliciting sponsors.
