THE STORY:

THE CLARENCE DEMAR MARATHON INC wrote - In the United States, it is safe to assume that if someone needs a wheelchair they will get it. That is not the case in many places in the world today. In the year 2000, rotarian Ken Behring created the Wheelchair Foundation, a non-profit rotary initiative that provides hope, mobility and independence to handicapped citizens of the world. It is estimated that worldwide over 100 million children, teens and adults are in need of wheelchairs. To date the Rotary Wheelchair Foundation has distributed over 1 million chairs. Keene Elm City Rotary has contacts in Jamaica and Mexico to facilitate our participation in the Wheelchair Foundation. Last year two club members traveled to Jamaica to help distribute over 33 chairs. Lives were changed on both sides as we witnessed first hand the joy and freedom represented in these simple chairs. Keene Elm City Rotary pledged over 5,000.00 in wheelchair aid for 2016 which we would like to build upon in the coming years. Thank You for your support of this gift of movement for those who can not. Please realize that every 150.00 raised a new chair can be purchased for those in waiting. You run so that others can be made mobile. What a gift!
