Hanger Kids Scholarship to Camp No Limits

Hanger, Inc. donated $100,000 to establish scholarships to Camp No Limits, a non-profit camp for children with limb loss or limb difference to receive education, mentorship, and support. In 2016 and 2017, scholarships were funded by grants from the Hanger Charitable Foundation through the Hanger Charitable Foundation Kids Scholarship to Camp No Limits.

The First Hanger Kids Scholarship Award Recipient

deven_jackson_family2.jpgThe first Hanger Kids Scholarship to Camp No Limits was awarded to 10-year-old Deven Jackson from Shermans Dale, Pennsylvania.  In August 2012, Deven lost both legs below the knees to meningococcal meningitis at the age of 8.  Before his illness, Deven played football, baseball, and soccer so returning to a very active lifestyle is important to Deven and his parents David and Michelle Jackson.  As the first Hanger Kids Scholarship recipient, Deven attended the Camp No Limits camp in Florida in January 2014.  He achieved his goal of running for the first time since losing both legs and commented that he loved to feel the wind in his face.

“Deven walked away with such a confidence, more determination, and some great new friends.  As parents, we walked away knowing Deven is going to accomplish everything and anything he wants to,” said Deven’s mom Michelle.

A Message From Camp No Limits Founder/Director

“In just several days of camp, we see children who once hid their residual limbs now wearing shorts, comparing prosthetic devices, riding bikes for the first time, and enjoying life uninhibited as all children should. It’s the power and comfort of engaging with someone who is like you, who understands you.  We are so thankful Hanger values Camp No Limits and is supporting us with such a generous donation and scholarship offering.”
