Run 5 Give 5 For 15

Image title

On May 5, 2015, we invite you to participate with thousands of individuals, everywhere, in 5FIVE15, which is a national run campaign benefiting Amputee Blade Runners (ABR).  The campaign is designed to get people, run groups, classes, and teams involved in raising awareness for amputee athletes.  Through the 5FIVE15, participants will join the ABR team in raising money for our next athletes.  You can choose to run by yourself, with a group, a team, a co-worker, or just with a few friends.  Since ABR is a team, we encourage you to make this a group or social event.  We want people to be active and support a great cause in the process!

Here's How The Campaign Works:

Run 5 – You can run for 5 minutes, a 5K, or 5 miles. (Something that contains a 5 in it!) You can run by yourself, with a group, or run an organized race.  We just want to see people be active and take part in this campaign.
Give FIVE – Donate $5 online to our campaign so we can help amputees realize their dreams of running once again, or for some, the very first time.
For 15 – The goal is to raise $15,000, which is enough money to support 5 amputees with free running/sports legs

How will the Money be used?

Every penny raised through the 5FIVE15 Campaign will go towards helping amputees either become active again, or for the first time.  The money will be used to purchase running legs, provide custom sockets, and liners for amputees that are seeking this active lifstyle, but may not be able to afford the cash prices that can reach $10,000 plus dollars for each leg.  Our team, consisting of Prosthetist, Doctor, and Fabricator, all donate their time for free to help these individuals reach their goals!
