Calling All Local Heroes! - Local Heroes Contact Starts Now


This year’s Local Hero contest starts now and you could win a wheelchair accessible vehicle! It’s time to get the word out about all of the awesome mobility solutions available to the adaptive community as we kick-off another year of unprecedented success during National Mobility Awareness Month.

START NOMINATING

Local Heroes can be Defined as People who Volunteer, Educate, Advocate, Achieve, and Persevere.  Those who continue to triumph over living with mobility challenges can now be nominated to share their stories and promote mobility awareness throughout the community.

Stories will be shared and voted on. Voting is open to the public.  Voting begins on March 11th and winners of this year’s Local Hero contest will receive one of three new, customized wheelchair accessible vehicles.

Over 18 million people in North America are living with restrictive mobility issues. This is your chance to change the lives of just a few of those triumphing in the face of adversity.
