On Saturday, October 6, nearly thirty East Coast Orthotic & Prosthetic Corp. employees, friends, family and patients walked in the Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes in beautiful Buffalo, NY. They walked three miles as part of the event to help raise awareness of diabetes. Working in the orthotic and prosthetic industry, we have seen many patients who have developed diabetes and have become amputees as a result of that. To help further raise awareness of diabetes, Tricia Andres, CO, and Western NY Regional Manager of East Coast O & P gave out educational materials on diabetes to her staff. Furthermore, the team sold red rubber bracelets to help raise money for the cause. In total, nearly $1,500.00 was raised for the efforts.
East Coast Orthotic & Prosthetic Corp. would like to thank all those who participated in this amazing event!
