AMPed Fest will be held on April 21st, 2018 from 11:00am-3:00pm at the parking lot turned festival ground behind the Touro Outpatient Rehab facility on St. Charles Avenue. In addition to live music, AMPed FEST will highlight Awareness, Advocacy, Innovations, and Resources centered around amputation. The audience for this event will be the community in general but also the PT department at LSU (who will also be presenting at the event) as well as people with amputation. The festival will also feature a Community Partners area where local organizations that benefit those with limb loss can come and share their mission. The event is free to the public. We would love to have your organization’s support for this event and inclusion on any online calendars. All money raised will go towards two initiatives. First, we will help sponsor to send local youth to the Paddy Rossbach youth camp (https://www.amputee-coalition.org/events-programs/youth-camp/). Next, we will sponsor adults to go toe the Amputee Coalition National Conference (https://www.amputee-coalition.org/events-programs/national-conference/).
