Mobility event helps amputees make strides

A mobility clinic in Manhattan's Chelsea Piers is helping amputee athletes make better use of their prosthetics and also giving them a chance to meet other amputees and learn from them.

The clinic, which is sponsored by the Challenged Athletes Foundation, invited 41 people of all ages to Chelsea Piers over the weekend to participate in the event.

"They teach me the right technique for my running," says 11-year-old David Gelfand, who has competed in six triathlons.

The Challenged Athletes Foundation holds the free mobility clinics in cities across the country.
