Every May in Bend, Oregon
, the locals come out to cheer and watch as athletes participate in one of the region’s most popular outdoor events of the year-The Pole Pedal Paddle (PPP). Last year, Summit Prosthetics & Orthotics, Bend, Oregon, sponsored Team Rebuild, a relay team made up of Jeff Hancock, Prineville, Oregon; Rick Cavens, Bend; Dan Stone, Sunriver, Oregon; and Ken Cook, Bend. The all-amputee team, which did not enter the race as a disabled team, inspired the spectators with an emotional finish.
