Freedom Innovations supported AMP1 Basketball, the first and only organized stand-up basketball team, at a recent game in Fort Worth, Texas.
AMP1 Basketball plays in charity challenge games nationwide — including those played against able-bodied teams — to benefit physically challenged students, amputees and cancer patients. Freedom Innovations’ sponsorship of lower extremity prosthetic products has enabled the AMP1 team to excel in the demanding sport of stand-up basketball, according to a press release.
Freedom Innovations also underwrites the team’s travel to games and to visit hospitals, clinics and rehabilitation facilities where their presentations provide inspiration, motivation and hope to adults and children facing their own challenges, while also recruiting new players for the AMP1 team.
In the recent match against a staff team from Cook Children’s Medical Center and Camp Sanguinity, a summer camp for children being treated for cancer and blood disorders, the AMP1 team raised money for the Camp and showcased AMP1’s message of “anything is possible.”
“When you pair advanced prosthetic care with our commitment to collaboration and innovation, amputees have the ability to reach their full potential,” Gary Wertz, executive vice president of Freedom Innovations, stated in the release. “AMP1 Basketball is a perfect example of how people, equipped with the most effective tools can excel, while also inspiring others to do the same.”
