Brittany and Brian Anderson are the founders of Footprints Adventures.
We are passionate about helping individuals with limb differences and limb loss. An accident in 2004 left Brian with a limb difference and inspired us to begin working with special needs populations using our outdoor leadership and education skills. It became apparent to us that there was a gap in the outdoor industry; there was little opportunity for active teens and adults with limb loss and limb differences to have the extraordinary experiences in nature that we love so much. Out of this realization came the development of Footprints Adventures.
