Challenged Athletes Clinic Held for Chicago Runners
Saturday, August 11th was a beautiful day - one of those days that make you feel guilty if you go inside. It was on this sunny Saturday that Ossur, Challenged Athletes Foundation, Scheck & Siress and the Chicago Park District invited disabled athletes out to get some expert advice on getting active. A running and mobility clinlic held at LaFollette Park in Chicago brought out about 30 people with disabilities, mostly amputations, to try walking, running and moving more efficiently and comfortably. Special guest coach, Bob Gailey, PhD, PT was on hand to help with training techniques, balance and maximizing prosthetic capabilities. It was a big success!
