Most of us don't think anything of small, everyday injuries – that's because these injuries or wounds usually heal without any problems. However, many wounds don't heal properly. Sometimes it's the type of wound. Wounds such as diabetic foot ulcers, leg ulcers from chronic venous or artery disease, bedsores, traumatic injuries and even surgical wounds may not heal. The problems are a lack of knowledge about how to diagnose & treat wounds and lack of access (funding) to proper therapies, medical technologies and trained wound-care professionals. The result is millions of untreated and mistreated patients each year.

How big is the wound problem? It is a silent epidemic.

In developed countries, 1-2% of the population will experience a chronic wound during their lifetime and in the U.S. chronic wounds affect 6.5 million patients. 7 million people in the U.S. are affected by venous leg ulcers and the rate of recurrence for venous ulcers is almost 70%.   And that is just Chronic Wounds.

The Wound Reach Foundation is providing more knowledge and more access for more people.  We believe we can improve wound care globally with increased public awareness, expanded knowledge, enhanced care and support for research to improve wound care.

Please help us achieve that goal by participating in the OUCH Race Series.
