Our Mission

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.


We promote  inclusion and bring  communities together through empowering 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 those with limb loss and limb differences.

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. 


Our community is our priority. Our event may be canceled, but our mission is still running (rolling, and walking!) strong behind the scenes. Stay strong and healthy. Be positive. Be adaptABLE.

-Kristen Smith, Founder of Laps for Limbs

In light of the evolving COVID-19 situation, the 9th Annual Laps for Limbs WNY event has been canceled. We are currently working on establishing a virtual platform for anyone who would still like to complete laps/miles for our mission. Please continue to check back and follow us on Facebook for updates.

Additionally, the Inaugural AdaptABLE Conference and Expo (ACE), co-hosted by Running For Those Who Can't, has been postponed to April 2021.


Thank you for your continued support!
