Recently, MCOP had the privilege to co-sponsor an Amputee Awareness 5k hosted at Wootton High School in Rockville, Maryland. It was great to see amputees, friends, and families walking and running to raise awareness for amputees across the country! One runner, Colin Potts, is someone that was highlighted in a University of Maryland athletics news piece. Potts had part of his left leg amputated last year and has been working with MCOP to regain his mobility. This is his second time participating in the Amputee Awareness 5k. Last year, while still getting adjusted to having a prosthetic, he walked. This year, with more time to use and learn about his prosthetic, he ran with the support of his trainer, friends, and family.
MCOP is excited to continue to support Colin in his next goal which is to compete in the 2020 Paralympic games in Tokyo. To learn more about Colin and his journey, click here to read the full story!
