Homes for Our Troops is an organization that Agility Orthopedics feels very strongly about. Their core mission is to build homes with necessary adaptions for the brave men and women of our military who have been severely injured while serving their country. Since 2001, more than 6,000 American soldiers have been killed and over 40,000 have suffered injuries. Although the Homes for Our Troops organization has built over 100 specially adapted homes for our injured heroes, they estimate that there is a need for well over 1,000 homes. Unfortunately, many of those injured who have sacrificed so much are now faced with a loss of independence. Supporting an organization like the Homes for Our Troops is a great way to help our brave hero’s.
For the past 4 years, Agility Orthopedics has been a proud sponsor of the Run for the Troops Road Race and Walk to benefit the Homes for the Troops Organization. We hope to see you there.
