With the start of Operation Walk Pittsburgh in 2008, the AMD3 Foundation has expanded its reach beyond the city limits by providing free hip and knee replacement surgeries to those in need, not just in Pittsburgh, but around the world each year.

Happening Now: Each year, the Operation Walk Pittsburgh team travels around the globe to help patients in need. In the past, the team has performed hip and knee replacement surgeries in Guatemala, Panama and Honduras. This year they will take their first trip to Havana, Cuba.
