Thank you so much for making it to the page, it means a lot!!!
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.
How FWM's Race Team Works
Anyone participating in the LA Marathon, 5K, or Charity Half Marathon Relay can become a fundraiser for FWM and help us raise funds for wheelchairs.
Join our team and raise funds on your free fundraising webiste between now and race day.
Every $63.94 you raise means we can give away another wheelchair to someone in need... PLUS you are that much closer to qualifying to have your race registration fee reimbursed! Learn more about how our race team works
