Angelz believe in giving back. We donate a percentage of our sales to the Challenged Athletes Foundation and support Challenged Athlete Tara Butcher.
Angelz, by their very nature are philanthropic. At Active Angelz, we believe:
“I am grateful for my strong, athletic and healthy body. I embrace my femininity. I combine this with setting an example for others by helping, giving and accepting my responsibility as a human being of this planet.” I am An Active Angel.
Tara Butcher – Below the Knee Amputee
Tara was struck by an oncoming car at 72mph in a catastrophic pedestrian auto accident, which resulted in a severe spinal cord injury and the amputation of her left leg below the knee. As a lifelong athlete, Tara was determined to live an active life. With CAF’s past grant for a running prosthesis, she has been able to continue her passion despite her challenges. Tara has completed several triathlons, marathons, and recently climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro in Africa.“I always knew I could go one of two ways with this,” Butcher adds. “I could lie in bed, be depressed, not do anything, and take pain pills. Or I could fight—work out, try my hardest, and be the strongest and in the best shape that I can be. There’s no in-between with this. I chose to fight.” And run.
