PENNSAUKEN, N.J. (WTXF) - For Brandon Holiday, going for a run is a matter of changing his prosthetic leg, and moving forward.
Whether it's running, coaching, or training for the U.S. National Team and the 2020 Para Olympics in kayak, he has come a long way since he became an amputee 11 years ago.
Now, he helps others through the athletes with disabilities network and is preparing for a 5k charity run in Pennsauken.
"We are creating opportunities and events for them to see other people with similar disabilities doing any sport from running to kayaking," said Holiday.
Brandon, a former police officer who lost his leg from complications with lupus, gives thanks to a South Jersey company -Prosthetic Orthotic Solutions International- for crafting his prosthetics and sponsoring the event for all people with disabilities.
The technicians at POSI handcraft countless prosthetics every year.
