I volunteered as a student consultant to work with MiracleFeet through my MBA program at Duke University. As part of the project, my team got to travel to Nicaragua and witness the impactful work of the local doctors, clinic assistants and MiracleFeet staff on the ground. In performing our work, it was extremely easy to work and communicate with the MiracleFeet team. I especially appreciated that they wanted to prioritize our personal learning in addition to completing the project. If you are looking for a nonprofit to support in the medical device space, I highly recommend MiracleFeet.

Currently, I am an MBA student at Duke University. A team of students, including me, consulted for MiracleFeet and assisted with solving an operational challenge. Hands-down, this was one of the best MBA experiences.

MiracleFeet has a significant mission and it was evident that the staff was passionate about giving children the gift of walking again. Their passion was contagious as our team became set on fire to also make a difference for the children in need of a brace.

Working with the team at MiracleFeet was exceptional. The team was knowledgeable, friendly, and on top of it.

We are grateful to have had the experience of working with MiraclFeet and hope that we were a little piece in the puzzle to giving children the gift of walking again.

I worked with MiracleFeet through Duke University on a project for my MBA. This organization does amazing work and I was lucky enough to work on a project that could provide an immediate impact for them.

The team we worked with very helpful and you can tell they have a passion for what they do. I cannot recommend MiracleFeet enough.

As a pediatric physical therapist in the United States, I often take for granted the resources we have available to us -- even though my own sister was born with bilateral clubfoot. After visiting a third world country, I was struck by the amount of kids affected by treatable birth deformities. MiracleFeet is changing the lives of thousands of these children with their treatment interventions. I am personally and professionally proud to support this organization!

The first time I heard what Miracle Feet is doing in our world, I knew that my husband and I needed to come along side of them and help in the one way we could.

We decided to give on a monthly basis and are so pleased with the results. Can you imagine impacting a person's life in such a way that the future has limitless potential?

Thank you, Miracle Feet, for all that you do to make a difference, one foot at a time!

Miraclefeet is our new and favorite non profit. It has personal meaning to my husband and I. His daughter was born with club feet and has overcome so many challenges to lead a beautiful full life. We thank God that she was born in the USA. This made it easier to get the help she needed. Children in other countries are not as fortunate. This is why we decided to become a regular donor. We know that this money will help to change lives. We could not be happier with our choice of non profit. Go, Miraclefeet!

Miraclefeet is a wonderful organization. Our son was born with clubfoot and we wanted to donate his shoes and braces, and we found that through Miraclefeet. Every year our son has a fundraiser on his birthday to donate to Miraclefeet to help kids like him get the same chance he has to walk, run, and play.

Miraclefeet is an amazing non profit. My 10 year old was born with clubfeet and runs a double header basketball fundraiser game every year to support Miraclefeet because he believes that everyone born with clubfeet deserves to receive treatment and the gift of walking, just like him!

As a clubbie I have an unfair insight into clubfoot and its effects ;) What a privilege to be able to support the team at Miraclefeet to do what they do across so many countries; giving children back mobility for life! This treatment is indeed transformational and offers so much to individuals, households and their communities. I intend to continue my active support of Miraclefeet and encourage others to do so as well.

Since learning about MiracleFeet at a local race a few years ago, I was immediately impressed by their mission and staff. They have an incredibly dedicated team that I've volunteered with over the years and I can't say enough about how much amazing work they do throughout the year. They have consistently been one of my favorite organizations to root for and support each year. It's an amazing organization that does even more incredible work. Keep up the great work, team!

MiracleFeet is an amazing non-profit organization! My family hosts an annual fundraiser every year in honor of our two bilateral clubfoot boys. We chose to donate to MiracleFeet last year because of their commitment to helping families around the world receive proper treatment. We look forward to working with MiracleFeet in the years to come.

This is a charity everyone needs to get behind. They are making a real difference in eliminating untreated club foot. They are finding new ways to become involved in more countries and to make the treatment more economical in low income countries. They have my full support!

MiracleFeet is the reason why thousands of kids around the world can walk, run and play, abilities most take for granted. About 1 in 1000 kids will be born with this fairly easy to treat condition if you can get access to treatment. MiracleFeet has made their mission to help these kids by reaching out to those families who would be left to themselves otherwise. I was born with clubfoot myself and I can attest that a small gesture in the beginning of life makes all the difference later on.
