Community Events

Sports and Recreation - Engaging children and adults who live with an amputation is the heart of recovery.  ACR participates annually in sporting events such as the DisAbility Sports Festival and the Angel City Games.

Community Service Events - ACR can be found supporting our local Grand Terrace Lions, Inland Empire Disability Collabrative Expo, and Grand Terrace Day each year. These events not only provide an opportunity for ACR members to connect to their community, but supports our efforts to give back.

Camp No Limits - ACR sponsors amputee children and their families for a weekend at Camp No Limits in Big Bear.  Dedicated to children with limb loss and limb deficiency, Camp No Limits provides a unique and empowering experience.

Peer Visiting and monthly meetings are our main functions as a Support Group.  

We are also very active in sporting events, fund raising, and amputee networking within Southern California and on a Nationwide basis. We also are helping to get other support groups started such as the new group in the Coachella Valley and a Parents of Children with Limb Loss support group in Loma Linda. Please join us and help make a positive impact other new amputees lives. Speakers are available for presentations to your groups or organizations. Contact  Luis at 213-700-0970 or leave a message for ACR at 909-423-0562.
