Show Your Mettle Day

April 27, 2019

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every year that begins at 12:00 am on day last of April, repeating indefinitely

It’s the last Saturday in April and that means it’s time to #ShowYourMettle! We hope that all amputees will proudly wear and show their devices (prosthetic and/or assistive) on this day. The concept is simple – to show your “mettle,” the ability to cope well with difficulties or to face a demanding situation in a spirited and resilient way, by showing your “metal” prosthetic device or wheelchair.

We are also encouraging all amputees (who feel comfortable) to post a photo of yourselves wearing your prosthesis, in your wheelchair or just living your lives if you do not use an assistive device, using #ShowYourMettle throughout the month of April on our social media platforms – Facebook (Facebook.com/AmputeeUSA), Instagram (Instagram.com/AmputeeCoalition) and Twitter (Twitter.com/AmputeesUSA).
