McKeever's First Ride celebrates the life and legacy of Dan McKeever. A pioneer in the orthotic and prosthetic field, Dan understood the needs and challenges faced by amputees. He pushed for technological advances and encouraged these men and women to defy the odds and reach for their dreams. Patients from Children's Healthcare of Atlanta do just that with the 2012 event.
