A Letter from the Founder

October 2012

Dear Friends:

As summer winds down Diana and I are eagerly looking forward to cooler weather and the return of many of our friends from up North. It is also a time for us to sit back and appreciate what this last season has wrought for the mission of Miracle Limbs-Courage in Motion, which is now our “Life” passion. Seven years ago we would not, in our wildest imaginations, have thought this would be the path God would choose for us. We are truly blessed, as is Miracle Limbs-Courage in Motion.

So many great things have happened in the past three months we want to share some of the highlights in appreciation of your support. Each and every one of you, in some way, has contributed to our dream of creating the first not for profit that truly deals with all aspects of the needs of an amputee and their family.

In June we flew to Austin, TX for the second time to be at the First Annual Walk of Courage, sponsored by Pepsico, Austin Zone. Through the Enable program within Pepsico which is designed to help the disabled, we were found on the internet, established a relationship, and had an incredibly successful event. Over 120 Pepsico employees and friends showed up in 106 degree weather, to support us. They are now committed to future walks in Dallas, Houston and then other cities across the country. We are extremely grateful to Ray Magruder and Idris Rashid at Pepsico. Future events will undoubtedly be a great financial support for Miracle Limbs.
This summer, awareness continued to spread and we were able to begin assistance to more amputees than in any previous three month period. We are receiving far more requests through the internet and hospital systems in Southwest Florida. The efforts of our Steering Committee, who develop support networks for us in in the funding and press communities, hospital systems, school systems and event planning have also been key. If you have any interest in being a part of this group, please contact Diana at 239-300-8156.

We are thrilled to once again be hosted by Hamilton Harbor Yacht Club as their signature charity, for the Fourth Annual All Species Fishing Tournament to be held on Nov. 3rd.  Planning has gone on all summer. It is Gentleman’s start, 20 scoring species with a maximum of 4 anglers per boat. Captain’s meeting will be Nov 2nd at MarineMax. This year we will add a great element in that we are requesting corporate and private sponsorships of boats to allow amputees to be included in the tournament. For more details on registration or sponsorship go to our web site or call us at 239-591-8393! Pre-registration deadline is October 24th. Sponsorship deadline is October 8.
We are proud to announce a key addition to our Board of Directors. Gordon Kellam, First Vice President, Wealth Asset Management of Merrill Lynch Naples. Gordon has enthusiastically joined our Board. We are truly happy to have him and congratulate him on his first born; a son, Maxwell. With parents like his, Maxwell can truly become a “Prince amongst men”.

We are happy with our growth and continue to progress with our strategic growth plan. We are, however, having trouble keeping our funding up to match the needs of increased numbers of recipients. More than ever, we need private funding of any amount possible, so please keep us in mind.

Hope to see you all at one of our events this year. In addition to the All Species Tournament, save the date for the 5th Annual Courage in Motion Bicycle Ride on March 16th!

God bless,
Bob
