Amputee Blade Runners

Who We Are

When a local prosthetic company gave our co-founder, Ryan Fann, his first running leg after high school, the world opened up. It’s precisely that opportunity that inspired Aaron and Ryan — two prosthetists — to found Amputee Blade Runners in 2011. Since then, they’ve continually let their mission guide them to help lower-limb amputee athletes of all ages redefine what’s possible in sports, and in life.
