Earlier this month members from the Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF), who sponsors Project Medishare’s amputee soccer team, traveled to Haiti to launch their “Return to Sports” program in partnership with Project Medishare and the Knights of Columbus. The goal of the new program was to use sports to heal the proud and resilient people of Haiti.
During their visit CAF operated their first international running clinic led by University of Miami’s Bob Gailey, PhD, PT and Ossur clinical prosthetist Peter Harsch.
During the same weekend, Hospital Bernard Mevs Project Medishare unveiled its new prosthetic lab which was made possible through the partnerships with Ossur and Knights of Columbus.
