Norma did it!
Running the Chicago Marathon—one of the six World Marathon Majors and an IAAF Gold Label race, is such a feat. It requires so much stamina and is such an accomplishment. Norma did it today and dedicated it to the children CLESF has treated.

One out of 55 thousand children is born with a lower extremity deformity--they cannot walk. CLESF surgeons treat various cases every year. This year Norma H. Ortega Gonzalez, a marathon runner, is running for CLESF kids. Will you support her and CLESF? WALK. INSPIRE. DREAM. Uno ...

About one child in every 55,000 live births is born with an ankle deformity, something that podiatrist Dr. Paul Bishop of the Foot and Ankle Centers in Yorkville and Morris is working to fix.

Worldwide, one to three children in every 50,000, are born with congenital malformation of fibular hemimelia, while another three or four per 50,000 have some other kind of physical deformity.
CLESF always supports and promotes the correction and lengthening of the limb by external fixation.

Our Story

The CLESF Foundation (a.k.a. Chicago Lower Extremity Surgical Foundation) was established to provide treatment for individuals and communities in need. Through collaboration, volunteerism and goodwill, CLESF has provided new hope and opportunity for many individuals and families via the Walk. Ispire. Dream. medical mission. With the help of private donors, corporations and physicians from Chicago and Mexico, every year CLESF conducts medical mission work to perform pro-bono surgical procedures on children and adults with lower extremity deformities and conditions. The cost to provide care for just one patient, including the surgical facility and equipment, hospital stays, meals, medication and nursing care can cost thousands of dollars. For most of these individuals, without the support of CLESF, the alternative is often amputation. With the gracious support of individuals like you, CLESF is able to undertake necessary and complex deformity correction procedures for children. The surgical procedures are performed at no cost to the patients, thanks to financial contributions like yours, as well as the surgeons’ donation of their time. By donating to CLESF, you can help to give them a chance to walk, run and dream. Every contribution counts.
