We are a proud supporter of Crutches 4 Kids, a charity that donates crutches and mobility devices to children in need. Crutches 4 Kids’ has addressed the dire need for mobility devices:
“50 million kids are in need of mobility aids like crutches, canes and walkers as a result of chronic disease, war, natural disasters, traumatic accidents, extreme poverty, and poor health care. Only 10% of children in undeserved communities have access to mobility aids due to such barriers as cost, accessibility, and supply. “
Peak Performance is always a drop-off location for mobility devices (crutches, walkers, canes.) As Physical Therapists, we are happy to help get our patients off their crutches and less reliant on canes and walkers. Once our patients no longer are in need of their mobility devices, we encourage them to pass them on to someone in need.
Drop off your mobility devices for collection at any Peak Performance location and we will be happy to transfer your donation to Crutches 4 Kids. Donations are ongoing.
