OPAF clinics get O&P patients moving

The Orthotic & Prosthetic Activities Foundation (OPAF) has signed two significant 2012 sponsors for its First Clinic series of no-cost, introductory adaptive recreational clinics for individuals served by the O&P community.

Owings Mills, MD-based Board of Certification International has upped its 2011 Bronze-level sponsorship to Silver, and Troy, MI-based Becker Orthopedic is a Bronze-level sponsor for the second consecutive year.

Cary, IL-based Gulbrandson Orthotics & Prosthetics will host a First Clinic event on Sunday, February 12. First Dance Clinic, adaptive social dancing for those with physical challenges, will run from 2 to 5 pm at the Holiday Inn Crystal Lake. To register for First Dance, call Gulbrandson O&P at 847/639-4140.

OPAF is the philanthropic arm of the U.S. O&P community. Its First Clinic series includes adaptive tennis, swimming, social dance, therapeutic horsemanship, kayaking, scuba, golf, and rock climbing. For more information on OPAF, First Clinics, or corporate sponsorships, go to www.opfund.org.
