THE STORY:

Wheels4Change wrote -

Wheels4Change was created to fill the existing gap in services for at-risk local veterans. What kinds of gaps? There are veterans who don’t know they are eligible to attend college; still others believe they can’t receive the social services they desperately need; they don’t understand their feelings and can’t explain it to their spouses; some develop substance abuse problems to mask the confusion and pain. By interacting with these veterans locally – on the ground daily – we have seen all too often the failure of veterans’ programs to address crucial needs locally.
The Bicycle Program:
Bicycles are donated and go through a comprehensive detailed review in which needed repairs are noted. Our bike program is operated by two veterans who have volunteered with us for six months. We would like them to become contractors paid by W4C to run our ‘give back’ Bike Co-op Program.

Marvin Smith is a vet who served our country. When he came home, he faced some tough obstacles, but has turned his life into a shining example of what we all aim to be -- honorable courageous, kind and perseverant. I'm supporting MarvinSmith in the Akron Marathon. He's running for Wheels4Change which helps vets live fulfilling lives after service. Marvin has faced some tough obstacles, but has turned his life around. 2 years ago
