Foundation helps kids with prosthetic legs run faster!

ATLANTA, Ga. -- Running faster! Jumping higher! And doing the chicken dance.

It was all part of a clinic put on by the Challenged Athletes Foundation today to help kids with prosthetic legs move better.

11Alive's Kaitlyn Ross reports on all the fun.

Tripp Dobler is gunning for his sisters.

"I'm going to tell them, I bet I can beat you now," he said.

The 6 year old got a new prosthetic today that he says will make him fierce on the race course.

"When I beat them I'm going to say HA," he said.

Kids of all ages were invited out to Georgia Tech to learn how to better use their prosthetic legs, to make them more active.

"You can do anything if you put your mind to it! It doesn't matter what obstacle you have to overcome. As long as you have the right mindset and the will to carry on, you'll get through it,' he said.

Robert Berry lost his leg 3 years ago, but hasn't slowed down a beat.

Today's clinic with the Challenged Athletes Foundation is only helping kids like him and 10 year old MeiMei get faster!

"It will show everyone, hey I can do this really good," said MeiMei.

Running, jumping, and dancing!

"I learned the chicken dance," said Tripp.

The Challenged Athlete Foundation works with kids across the country to help get them moving.
