The Limb Kind Foundation held an adaptive fashion show in Atlantic Beach.
The "Show Your Shine" event was organized to help get prosthesis to deserving people in third-world countries.
Solan Weakly, a 9-year-old who lost a leg at age 3 due to a rare bone tumor, was among the participants.
“It was just amazing. It was so fun. You got to do a lot of spins, and do whatever you want,” she said.
“Just seeing her be so free and so happy, it’s just stunning. Probably one of my favorite nights in a long time,” said Shay Weakly, her mother.
Robert Schulman, of the Limb Kind Foundation, hopes this event can make a difference in the world.
“Most of the kids that we are giving a prosthesis to have never had a prosthesis in their life or are wearing something that truly does not fit them,” he said.
The show raised over $50,000 to help the Limb Kind Foundation with their outreach and future trips.
