Our Story

In 2009 we found ourselves thrust into the world of paediatric orthopaedics when our daughter Ellen was born with fibular hemimelia. Our journey to SickKids was a long one, but once we arrived we knew Ellen and our family would be cared for and we placed our trust in their compassionate surgical and nursing staff.

Through our experience we learned a lot. Each discussion with patients and their families made us think about how we could help. How could we create a network to increase awareness and raise funds to aid patients and their families who undergo limb reconstruction?

Spin for Limbs was born: a bike, walk and family festival that would support limb reconstruction (LR) at SickKids. The inaugural Spin for Limbs Ride/Walk was held September 15, 2012 and raised over $25,000 for children and their families affected by pediatric limb reconstruction. To date we have raised over $50,000.

Limb reconstruction is something that changes a child's life forever and gives them the opportunity to live active and full lives.

I know that these days it seems like everyone is asking you for money for one cause or another but please consider donating to this one and change a child's life forever!

Thank you, we truly appreciate your support.

Steve, Jennifer, and Ellen Beatty

What does your donation do?


"The area that we are really lacking is in the patient, family and even surgeon/health care professional education area. At present most information available in the public domain is poor, and not necessarily relevant to our patients and families. In many cases some of the info causes unnecessary anxiety for our families." Dr. Simon Kelley, Paediatric Orthopaedic Surgeon, The Hospital for Sick Children

This year, Spin for Limbs fundraising will be used to establish better communication via a website/webpages and printed literature based on expert information from the limb reconstruction team at SickKids combined with input from families who are about to have and have completed limb reconstruction surgery.

The goal is for the SickKids Limb Reconstruction team to provide better forums not just for the children they treat, but for other children around Canada and indeed internationally. It will also serve for better education for physicians referring patients to SickKids, and for the surgical trainees at SickKids who will take away treatment protocols for their patients when they leave.
