Chucky, who will be 25 years old this year, is confined to a manual wheelchair he is incapable of self-propelling. Known for his outgoing and friendly attitude, Chucky loves to interact with other people in the community, and young friends often accompany him to local events. Due to his severe cerebral palsy, however, his involvement in many activities is limited to that of a spectator. Sporting events in particular are a challenge, since independent participation is physically impossible for him.
In order for Chucky to participate in the Tri-City Marathon, volunteers from Richland, Kennewick, and Pasco will take turns pushing him in a Freedom Push Chair by Advanced Mobility for 26.2 miles. This is where you come in...we are aiming to raise enough funds to purchase this Freedom Chair for Chucky!
Through your tax-deductible donations to this page, we will be able to purchase a chair for Chucky AND a chair for others to borrow from our friends at The Arc of Tri-Cities!
So, take a moment to donate now and let's make Chucky's journey to earning the title "Marathoner" a reality!
