Jacob Petermann and Greg Pruitt

Jacob Petermann thanks Greg Pruitt for his new prosthetic foot that will help him participate in athletic activities. Pruitt is the founder of the 'Little Buddy Foundation.'

In an effort to get the word out on his Little Buddy Foundation, Greg Pruitt met with the Dickinson Press to do a story on the charity. One day later, Pruitt heard about a high school basketball player in Wahpeton who had his leg amputated. Pruitt said it was a sign and he knew instantly Jacob Petermann would be the first prosthetic recipient from his foundation.

“A friend of mine called and said, ‘I don’t know if this is a coincidence or what’s going on,’ and I said, ‘Wow,’” Pruitt said. “Right then and there we said Jacob had to be the first recipient of the Little Buddy Foundation.”
