SAAF Events! 

Christmas Caroling

December 24, 2019

We helped residents of Brookdale Medical Center assisted living celebrate their holiday brunch by singing some favorite carols of the season! Santa Claus even stopped by!

Nursing Home Manicures

December 23, 2019

SAAF spent the morning at Regent Care Center visiting with residents and giving them manicures for the holidays!

Caring for Shelter Dogs and Cats

December 17, 2019

SAAF is happy to volunteer with anyone who needs help, and that includes furry friends. We visited San Antonio Pets Alive! to provide some exercise, socialization and love to a number of dogs who had been rescued from a kill shelter. We took them for a walk and gave them some treats before spending time with cats who had also been given a second chance at life. One of the cats was even an amputee! All the animals are up for adoption. 

Serving the Homeless

December 10, 2019

SAAF always seeks to find ways to pay forward our blessings. We were invited by the Sachs Group to join them at the Church Under the Bridge, a community that serves the homeless people of San Antonio. In what was a humbling, moving experience, we helped prepare and serve a hot meal to several hundred men, women and children on a cold, winter night.

Physical Therapy Students Meet Our Amputees

December 09, 2019

SAAF is always happy to help educate the community about limb difference and amputation. Several SAAF members met with physical therapy students at Concorde Career College in San Antonio to share our stories, answer questions, and provide (what was for some students) a first-time interaction with an amputee.
 

SAAF Friendsgiving

November 30, 2019

We are more than just members of the San Antonio Amputee Foundation; we are a family. On November 30th, we came together for a fun, family celebration of love and fellowship. The day included a delicious brunch, a fun "photo booth" and karaoke!

Visit to Morgan's Wonderland

November 02, 2019

SAAF members were invited to visit Morgan's Wonderland, and we had a great time! Located right here in San Antonio, Morgan’s Wonderland is the world’s first theme park designed with special-needs individuals in mind and built for everyone’s enjoyment. The completely wheelchair-accessible park features more than 25 elements including rides, playgrounds and other colorful attractions.

Amputee Swim Clinic

October 06, 2019

Being an amputee in the water can be daunting. Our swim clinic will have volunteer certified swim coaches to work with non-swimmers through expert swimmers to make amputees feel safe and have fun in the water!  

Blossom Athletic Center, 12002 Jones Maltsberger Rd, San Antonio, TX 78216.

 

Clinic lead by coach Susan Ingram, Coach for Masters of South Texas and USMS National Coach of the Year. Plenty of volunteer certified swim coaches to assist you in the pool. Bring a towel. Water and light snacks will be provided. Must RSVP to Mona Patel by 9/29/19. Text (210) 269-6662

Alamo Beer Challenge Races

September 21, 2019

For the second year in a row, SAAF is participating in the Alamo Beer Challenge Series of four 5K races. Our members are walking, running, and rolling the course, as well as volunteering to help out and cheer our SAAF Team Unstoppable as they cross the finish line. Races in 2019 are August 10th, September 21st, October 12th and November 16th. See our calendar for details.

Boy Asks for Birthday Donations to SAAF

September 14, 2019

Most little boys might ask for toys or video games for their birthday present. Instead, 8-year-old Jax Burton wanted to help amputees after the movie Soul Surfer inspired him to help. He raised enough money to help SAAF provide a member with an above-knee prosthesis and give her the gift of mobility!
