6-8pm
All You Can Eat Pizza Buffet
$10 per person
10% of all proceeds go to 501 (c) (3) non profit organization Amputee Blade Runners.

ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION:

Amputee Blade Runners was founded by 2 prosthetists, with the idea that giving someone one piece of equipment could change their life. That’s exactly what happened to co-founder Ryan Fann, when a local prosthetic company gave Ryan his first running leg after high school. Ryan excelled in sports throughout middle school and high school, but when he was fitted for his first running leg, the world opened up. He went on to run track at Tennessee State University and even earned a GOLD Medal in the Paralympics. Aaron and Ryan founded Amputee Blade Runners in 2011 to make this dream possible for others.

Health insurance companies have declared running prosthetics as “not medically necessary” and do not cover their cost. This organization helps amputees keep an active lifestyle by providing this vital equipment free of charge. Their goal is to provide a running prosthesis to one athlete in all 50 states. They currently have athletes in 31 states who serve as ambassadors to other amputees.

Enjoy some food and company, and hopefully we can raise enough funds to change a person's life for the better.

We hope you stay for the comedy show this evening at The Plus (just $5- doors at 8:30pm), where we will be taking additional donations.
