Our son Brayden was born in 2010 with congenital short femur in his left leg. We have been fortunate enough to live near and find one of the best hospitals and doctors(Dr. Shawn Standard) in the world to care for Brayden with what will likely be several operations over the years to correct his leg length. The Save-A-Limb Foundation supports Sinai Hospital and The Rubin Institute for Advanced Orthopedics. The Save-A-Limb ride and walk will raise money to financially assist patients who cannot afford physical therapy, housing during lengthy treatments, transportation or adaptive equipment such as wheelchairs.
This will be our second year participating in the Ride/Walk in Oregon Ridge Park, Maryland and we also have a team name of 'Footprints for Brayden' this year. We will be raising money in the Footprints for Brayden name in the way of tax deductible donations via this website:
Monatary donations can also be made in person. If you would like to participate with us on the walk or bike ride, feel free to visit the website and sign up. We would be happy to have you join us!! After the Ride/Walk, there are plenty of things for families to do as well along with food and refreshments. Thank you and spread the word!
