Free Wheelchair Mission - our mission is to provide the transforming gift of mobility to the physically disabled poor in developing countries. Our specially-designed, low-cost, and durable wheelchair is manufactured, shipped, and delivered all over the world. As of October 2011, we have given away over 600,000 wheelchairs in 82 countries worldwide.
2012 is Free Wheelchair Mission's first year with the LA Marathon, and we're excited to be here! FWM works internationally to provide wheelchairs to people with disablities in need around the world - at no cost to the recipient.
