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 September 2012, we have given away over 660,000 wheelchairs in 86 countries worldwide. The cost to manufacture, ship, and deliver 1 wheelchair is only $71.88.
2013 is Free Wheelchair Mission's second year with the LA Marathon, and we're excited to be back! FWM works internationally to provide wheelchairs to people with disablities in need around the world - at no cost to the recipient.
Last year we raised $11,000 - this year our goal is to raise $15,000, enough to provide 208 wheelchairs to people in need.
