Hanger, Austin, Texas, has donated $100,000 to establish the 2014-2015 Hanger Kids Scholarship to Camp No Limits, a nonprofit camp for children with limb loss or limb difference to receive education, mentorship, and support.
“Over the past 10 years, through their volunteerism with Camp No Limits, our employees have witnessed the incredible benefit this special camp provides for children with limb loss or limb difference and their families,” said Hanger Present and CEO Vinit Asar. “Camp No Limits founder Mary Leighton and her team have developed a truly exceptional experience. We are delighted to support their efforts and are happy this scholarship will help even more children and their families get to camp.”
Distributed into one hundred $1,000 scholarships, each award will cover the cost of attendance, lodging, meals, and included activities for 100 children with amputations or limb differences and an accompanying parent or guardian at any of the Camp No Limits camps available nationwide in 2014 and 2015. Children with limb loss or limb difference who are under the age of 18 at the time of application are eligible to apply; preference will be given to first-time campers. The Camp No Limits board of directors is managing the application and selection process.
