On Thursday, April 21, 2016, Dick Cubero (AIN Plastics Florida Branch) and Scott Moore (AIN Plastics Industry Segment Manager for Orthotics and Prosthetics) enjoyed a day on the golf course as participants in the 13th Annual Hanger Clinic Golf Challenge held at the Kissimmee Bay Country Club in Kissimmee, Florida. To learn more about Hanger Clinics visit them online.
This annual charity golf event supports Our Children’s Rehab Center, Inc. located in Winter Haven Florida.
The Winter Haven Children’s Rehab Center is dedicated to facilitating each child’s maximum independence and communicative abilities by a team that includes a Speech Language Pathologist, and Occupational and Physical Therapist who use innovative interventions when working with newborns, infants, toddlers and children through 21 years of age.
Last year’s Annual Hanger Golf Outing, in which AIN Plastics also participated and sponsored, raised an incredible $8,500 for the rehab center. Donations and sponsorship dollars from the annual golf outing have provided funds for a variety of programs and projects throughout the years.
• Therapeutic Gym
• The creation of a Sensory Garden
• New school bus with wheelchair lift
• Adapted horse tack for therapeutic riding
• The purchase of a prone stander to allow children in a wheelchair to be upright
Moore said, “I am truly proud to work for a company that is not only dedicated to the Orthotics, Prosthetics and Pedorthics industries but a company that cares and gives back to the local communities.”
