About This Activity

150 years ago, Hanger Clinic was founded by James Edward Hanger, the first  amputee of the civil war.  Today with 730+ clinics nationwide, out teams of  local clinicians are dedicated to helping individuals with limb loss and  musculoskeletal challenges improved their qulaity of life through customized  patient care  At hanger Clinic we feel very passionate about people affected by limb loss.   Their stories of determination inspire and empower us every day  100% of our proceeds will go directly to Grace’s Lamp  a charity that Joey  Funderburk and his family started to help Joey and others like him receive the  medical treatment that they need and also to help other families adopt children.  When they originally started raising funds to get new prosthetic legs for Joey,  they had no idea they would see such an incredible outpouring of love and  generosity for Joey’s needs. Everyone was so kind and encouraging, that they  soon realized they could not just sit back and accept all these blessings  without doing something to help others in similar situations. Grace’s Lamp was  established to help families adopt children, go on missions, and get the medical  treatment that they need.

This is a 5K run in the historic Ohio City section of downtown Cleveland, Ohio.
