Jake Lillis Gets New Running Legs
Bilateral above-knee amputee Jake Lillis has always been determined to push past his limitations and live life on his own terms. Always active, Jake has participated in skiing, running, and even triathlon events organized by the One Step Ahead Foundation. In recognition of his hard work and determination – and more importantly, his being a positive role model and mentor to all the other little kids and adults out there – Jake was recently given a pair of hybrid running legs by the foundation to help him continue his athletic endeavors. The legs were presented to Jake personally by One Step Ahead’s spokesperson, Aviva Drescher.
