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.”
