Did you know that May is National Mobility Awareness Month? The purpose of National Mobility Awareness month is to raise awareness for people with disabilities and the fact that they can live an active and mobile lifeftyle. Their spokesperson, Mike Savicki, is asking people to submit their stories to be showcased by national and local media.
The information will be shared by NMEDA’s Facebook page, blog and website. Local Heros will share stories of people who are dealing with their challenges in unique ways and will be encouraging friends and family to vote for their story to win a custom Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle. There are at least three chances to win!
This cause is so important because of the amount of people that are affected. Over 18 million people in the U.S. and Canada have mobility issues, and 6 Million of them are veterans. People with disabilities constitute the 2nd largest minority in the United States.
There are companies that are dedicated to improving the lives of people who are dealing with disabilities. From mobility equipment manufacturers, dealers, certified driver rehabilitation specialists and other professionals in their communities.
National Mobility Awareness Month is sponsored by NMEDA – The National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association and the following partners:
Bruno Independent Living Aids
VMI/Vantage Mobility International
SanTan Honda Superstore in Chandler, AZ
