Family Reunion

Since its inception in 2021, the Family Reunion has been a cherished highlight for the Jordan Thomas Foundation. Born from a deep desire for connection, this event embodies the spirit of our community. JTF is more than just a pathway for kids to receive the prostheses they deserve; it’s a vibrant community of remarkable kids and families seeking meaningful connections.

Each year, JTF invites every JTF kid and their family to Nashville for a weekend filled with activities, food, and relaxation. To ensure the event is as accessible as possible, JTF covers the cost of hotel stays, activities, and most meals. This allows families to fully enjoy the weekend without financial worries.

Never a Dull Moment

Every year, we strive to incorporate new and exciting activities into the Family Reunion schedule to ensure a fun and engaging experience for all attendees. Some of the past activities have included:

 

  • Nashville Zoo
  • Adventure Climbing at Soar
  • Putt Putt
  • Pottery Painting
  • Adaptive Rock Climbing
  • Park Day
  • Equine Therapy at Saddle Up
  • Pfunky Griddle
  • Sky Zone Trampoline Park
  • Golf Lessons
  • Pool Party

We are always exploring fresh ideas to make each reunion special and memorable for our JTF families.

 

 

Inspiration and Connection

While our Family Reunion is packed with fun and activities, we also aim to provide an inspiring environment for both kids and parents. To foster this, we dedicate an afternoon for everyone to connect through breakout groups, ending in a panel discussion.

Breakout Groups These smaller groups offer a wonderful opportunity for open and honest conversations about the challenges and successes experienced throughout the year. It’s a chance for everyone to share, learn, and support one another in a more intimate setting.

Panel Discussion The panel features incredible adult amputee role models who have achieved success in various fields such as athletics, fashion, writing, and more. This session allows kids and parents to ask questions and gain insights from those who have walked in their shoes. The stories and advice from these accomplished individuals provide valuable inspiration and guidance.

Our partnership with these role models continues to grow, and we aim to keep expanding our list of inspiring figures for the kids. If you or someone you know would be a great fit for our panel, please email us their details.
