Raising money for Free Wheelchair Mission which is an international non-profit organization that donates special equipped wheelchairs to the disabled and impoverished in under developed countries. For every $63.94 raised, one wheelchair will be donated. Please join me raising $1500 and giving the gift of mobility to 25 people in the world.
It has been a dream of mine to run the LA marathon and represent not only my city,but a life changing cause. I'd like nothing more than to raise those dollars for children and youth in need, I appreciate everyone's support in making this dream reality.
FREE WHEELCHAIR MISSION wrote -
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.
