Ponseti Kids for a Cause Triathlon
Ponseti International / Clubfoot Solutions Kids for a Cause Triathlon
In 2003 a sweet boy from St. Paul, Minnesota was born with bilateral clubfoot. His parents made the decision to travel to Iowa to receive treatment from renowned clubfoot specialist, Dr. Ignacio Ponseti. Dr. Ponseti developed the Ponseti non-surgical method of clubfoot correction that is the “gold standard” of clubfoot care around the world. The boys story is not unique; many have followed this path to Iowa City and the University of Iowa’s Ponseti Clubfoot Program. Clubfoot deformity is a genetic disease in which 1 in 750 children are born with clubfoot around the world. A large majority of these children in the developing world do not have access to the Ponseti method of treatment and a quality clubfoot brace.
As these children are born their lives are changed forever without proper medical treatment. Ponseti International and Clubfoot Solutions are helping to change these lives for the better with a world-wide training program of the Ponseti method and a quality clubfoot bracing with the Iowa Brace.
In 2011, through the inspiration of one little boy from St. Paul, Minnesota, Kids for a Cause Triathlon was founded with one goal in mind-- Helping kids realize they have the strength to make a difference—locally, nationally, and globally.
