Steve Chamberland, Founder
Steve is a former semi-pro football player, amateur hockey player, and pro-wrestler; Steve Chamberland understands the importance of physical activity. In addition to immediate health and mobility benefits, it also impacts your quality of life, confidence level, and self-worth. It is with this mindset that 50 Legs gladly provides quality prosthetic legs to children, adults, and military wishing to live an active lifestyle. In addition to helping children, Steve has a true respect for those that serve our country and has provided legs for many service men and women. 50 Legs was also one of the first to help and support victims of the Boston Marathon bombings. If you ask Steve how he feels about losing his leg, he might surprise you. “I thank God every single day for losing my leg, as it led me to what I am supposed to do. I just want to help people better their lives.” All you have to do is watch Steve interact with children to see he is truly in love with what he does!
