Event Description

Come join us for a 5K Fun Run and Fundraiser May 5, 2021 at 6pm. You can choose to run in-person or virtually. Our goal is to raise money during The Big Payback for Amputee Blade Runners, a  Non Profit organization that helps to provide free running prosthetics for amputees.

Amputee Blade Runners was founded by two prosthetists, with the idea that giving someone one piece of equipment could change their life. That's exactly what happened to our co-founder, Ryan Fann, when a local prosthetic company gave Ryan his first running leg after high school. Ryan excelled in sports throughout middle school and high school, but when he was fitted for his first running leg, the world opened up. He went on to run track at Tennessee State University and even earned a GOLD Medal in the Paralympics. This is why Aaron and Ryan founded Amputee Blade Runners in 2011.
