The mission of the Jordan Thomas Foundation is to provide children affected by limb loss with the prostheses they need throughout childhood and adolescence, and to serve as a caring resource, advocate and support system for these children and their families. Jordan Thomas established the Jordan Thomas Foundation at the age of 16 while recovering from the loss of both legs in a boating accident. He realized that there were other children in the hospital who would not have the advantages that he did and would go home without the limbs they needed to have a full, active, and happy life.
The financial commitment is great, with the cost of a leg averaging $10,000 and an arm $15,000. Therefore, Jordan’s family, friends, and many volunteers have worked with him every year since 2006 on this annual fundraiser to fulfill the commitment of working with children and young adults.
