Local Amputee Support Group Climbs
Connecticut Amputee Network is holding its monthly rock climbing activity for amputees at Rock Climb Fairfield, on January 31 from 7 to 8pm. The gathering is held the last Thursday of each month. Those that are climbing are supported by a community of rehab professionals, climbers and outdoor enthusiasts.
Other chapters in the state include the Hartford Mt Sinai Amputee Support Group in Hartford, Waterbury Amputee Motivation Group in Waterbury, Lawrence and Memorial Hospital Amputee Support Group in New London and Gaylord Amputee Success Group in Wallingford.
Connecticut Amputee Network advocates for Connecticut’s limb loss and limb change community. They communicate the community’s needs and concerns to elected officials at the local, state and federal levels, and in turn elected officials consult them as experts on the community’s position regarding disability issues. The network also provides information on the law and disability rights to the limb loss/limb change community.
