The 18th Annual Limbs for Life Golf Tournament was scheduled for October 19th. After speaking with most of you and gathering your input, we have made the difficult decision to not hold the tournament this year. The impact of the current environment on you - our sponsors, partners and friends - is significant.
We utilized a survey model to capture specific data in making the decision. Although several would attempt to participate if we held the tournament, most would need to reduce the level of sponsorship. With the feedback provided, the committee determined it is not economically feasible to hold the Limbs for Life golf tournament this year.
We value our relationship with you and want to do what’s in the best interest of Limbs for Life and each one of you. We are so grateful for your support and participation through the years and we will return. In fact, we have reserved October 18, 2021 at Gaillardia for our next tournament date. Mark your calendar, plan for your participation, and join us then. We will look forward to it!
We are thinking of you, your families and employees during this time. We look forward to brighter days, on the golf course, and beyond. Please reach out if you have questions.
Many, many thanks for your understanding and support.
One year since the beginning of the war, read how Limbs for Life has stepped up for Ukraine’s wartime amputees.
View an interactive map and follow the complex journey of delivering prosthetics to Ukraine’s amputees in need.
With the escalation of the war in Ukraine, Limbs for Life began receiving inquiries about assistance for amputees- soldiers and civilians who lost limbs from the fighting and those who lost access to care due to destruction of facilities.
The need for prosthetic care is increasing rapidly, with more people losing limbs and more clinics destroyed. Limbs for Life has joined a collaborative effort to address the prosthetic needs in Ukraine. Reports from within the country suggest as many as 8,000-10,000 individuals have lost limbs since the invasion, and many of the country's 400K existing amputees cannot access care. We continue to receive desperate appeals for aid from individuals and clinics.
A large shipment of prosthetic components, including 138 lbs. from our Limbs for Life Warehouse, left this week for Odesa, Ukraine, in collaboration with PENTA Medical Recycling. *Scroll down to see the complex journey, tracked by our partners at PENTA, necessary to get critical support to amputees so desperate for our help.
