Bio: Thirteen year old Adelynn Klundby was born with Proximal Femoral Focal Deficiency (PFFD) and is an above the knee amputee. As a baby with a “little leg” Adelynn always found ways to get around and reach the typical milestones. Growing up she has always enjoyed riding bikes, swimming, dancing and gymnastics.
Four years ago Adelynn attended her first CAF Nike running clinic and met her lifelong hero, and now mentor, Sarah Reinerstein. Last year, Adelynn applied for a grant through the Access for Athletes Grant Program and received her Ossur running leg during that years Nike clinic. She has since attended the Junior Seau Surf Camp in San Diego where she discovered her love for surfing. Later that year she was invited back to San Diego to attend the Aspen Medical Products San Diego Triathlon Challenge.
Adelynn’s passion now is both standing volleyball and sitting volleyball. She is continuing to work on her running skills so she can be a part of her school’s track team. Her goal is to be a member of the US Sitting Volleyball Team in 2020 and to work for CAF when she is older- helping kids and adults like her.
