Teens who are Un-Limb-ited


Un-Limb-ited is a program designed specifically for young adults (high school age) with amputation to attend winter and or summer recreational and therapeutic activities camps.  Un-Limb-ited focuses on encouraging high school aged young adults to better understand how to use their prosthetic through activities and sports. It has proved to further their social skills, build self-esteem, self-confidence and teach them that they individually are unlimited in their lives and opportunities. In a natural setting, camp also provides the opportunity to discuss with staff and peers issues common to teenage amputees. Check out what Un-Limb-ited has done for some of these young people.

Carats for Caring is a fundraiser that El Korah does to help raise money to support the Shriners Hospitals for Children Salt Lake City and the Un-Limb-ited Camps. We will be posting information about the event as the date grows closer. Be sure to check back for more updates.
