BENEFITING: WHEELS FOR HUMANITY
EVENT DATE: Oct 08, 2016
This October 8th, I'll be running the Rock n Roll Half Marathon Brooklyn in my manual wheelchair to raise money for a great cause.
The right to free movement is a basic human right that 59 million disabled people in developing nations do not have access to. In many countries, disabled persons are left to live on the floor, pushed into the streets, or are abandoned by their families. The lack of access to wheelchairs causes them to be a burden on their families and unable to access work or education.
Wheels for Humanity provides wheelchairs in developing nations to give disabled people the opportunity to actively participate and contribute to their communities.
I will match donations and I hope you can help me provide independence and empowerment to disabled persons in other countries. Any donation is welcomed and appreciated. Thank you so much!
