Living an active and healthy life as an amputee can be a daily challenge, if we allow it. Our founder became an amputee at age 35 and discovered a whole new way of living life. Whether you are young or old, missing one limb or all four, life is still here for you to explore and enjoy. PLAY is the positive step to becoming involved with an activity in sports, education or the arts, that will give you the encouragement or boost you have been looking for.
Or, if you have already found that activity, PLAY is here to expand your chosen activity or keep the existing momentum going by finding you additional programs.
PLAY is a grant program that currently provides scholarship awards for 10 qualified applicants annually. Our scholarship awards help with the financial costs of the applicants chosen activity. You can get information on who is eligible and how to apply on our Apply Page.
Current activities: As there is always some new activity or interest popping up, we encourage you to talk with us if you are interested in something that we do not have listed. However, below is a general guideline of activities we have approved funding for:
- Playing amputee basketball
