Amputee Awareness 5K

Nina Bondre, CPO and Barbara DeLorenzo, Accounting Manager,  attended the 3rd Annual Amputee Awareness 5K held by Adventist Healthcare on April 28, 2018. The event was held at Thomas S. Wootton High School in Rockville, MD. Participants of all ages gathered to walk, run, or wheel the 5K in the beautiful 75 degree weather that day.

Barbara and Nina were on hand with Gatorade to keep the participants hydrated and energetic. They also had a chance to share about our 3D printed fellows, 3DPO and Digit, with the many children that stopped by to play with them. 3DPO and Digit were excited to attend again, as they had such a fun time last year!

Dankmeyer was one of the many sponsors for this event, with several other orthotic and prosthetic companies in attendance to show their support. Barbara and Nina also brought a few orthotic and prosthetic demos to show to the participants, to further educate them on how orthoses and prostheses work. Those that stopped by the Dankmeyer booth were most excited about learning more about orthotics and prosthetics, and in particular learning about 3D printing. We were so glad we could help to sponsor this event!
