OPAF RECEIVES CONTRIBUTION FROM MIDWEST CHAPTER OF AAOP TO SUPPORT NEW
O&P SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

Washington, DC – OPAF has received a generous $2,000.00 contribution
from the Midwest Chapter of the American Academy of Orthotists and
Prosthetists (AAOP) to support the new O&P scholarship program
associated with the Dale Yasukawa Memorial Fund at OPAF. Proceeds from
the recent Midwest Chapter golf outing, held during the chapter’s 2003
annual meeting in Tinley Park, IL, yielded this contribution.

OPAF thanks the Midwest Chapter, its entire membership, and every
sponsor of and participant in the golf outing for their generosity and
support.

Complete information about the newly-established O&P scholarship program
associated with the Dale Yasukawa Memorial Fund is available at:
http://www.opfund.org/programs/scholarship.htm

OPAF is a 501(c)(3) public charity, the official philanthropy of the
U.S. orthotics and prosthetics community, established in 1995 by the
Orthotic and Prosthetic National Office. Dedicated initially to
providing financial and in-kind support to the 1996 Paralympics, OPAF
now generates its own initiatives through partnerships with individuals,
organizations and institutions engaged in raising public awareness of
disability and improving the quality of rehabilitation medicine, science
and technology.

As a community-focused nonprofit organization, OPAF aims primarily to
enable individuals with physical disabilities-especially those served by
members of the orthotics and prosthetics community-to enjoy the rewards
of personal achievement, physical fitness, and social interaction.

All contributions to OPAF are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of
U.S. law, and annual sponsorships of OPAF, its programs, and its
fundraisers are available to every individual, institution, and company
inside and beyond the O&P community. For more information about
sponsorship opportunities contact OPAF at 1666 K Street NW, Suite 440,
Washington, DC 20006, Tel. (202) 223-2878, email [email protected], or
