The Andrews Institute Krutches for Kids program is looking for parents to will donate gently used crutches to their school for student athletes in need. The drive will continue through December 31. Crutches can be dropped off to area high school in-house certified athlete trainers in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties.

“Hundreds of experienced crutches are languishing in the homes and garages of former athletes across Escambia and Santa Rosa counties,” says Larry Lasky, a certified athletic trainer at the Andrews Institute. “We are committed to recycling these crutches and distributing them to those students who need them the most.”

For more than 10 years, Baptist Health Care and the Andrews Institute have been placing certified athletic trainers in every high school in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties, providing complimentary sports medicine coverage, health and safety information and injury prevention education through their Sports Medicine Outreach program.
