April 2020: Limbs For Life
Every month, Fandom Running Club will be donating a percentage of proceeds from ALL virtual running event registrations to a fantastic charity partner. These organizations are our biggest fandom: the ones who make positive change, and help us create the sort of better world we want to live in. We’ve seen these worlds in our books, our films, our programs, our art. These charity partners make them a reality.
April is Limb Loss and Limb Difference Awareness Month (LLAM),and so this month, our charity partner is the incredible work of the Limbs for Life Foundation! Limbs for Life is dedicated to providing fully-functional prosthetic care to individuals who cannot afford it and raising awareness of the challenges facing amputees.
On average, 507 people per day in the United States will lose a limb. Many of these amputees will be unable to afford proper prosthetic care. Our support of Limbs for Life helps fund limbs for those in need as the financial bridge for these amputees. With your help, we can make a positive impact on amputees worldwide!
