What the Freedom Chair means to Nate, from his Mom & Caretaker Sandy:
Hi my name is Sandy Johnson. I am Nate’s mom and caregiver along with his dad Leon. We have lived in Orange all of our lives. Over the years we have looked at different ways Nate could participate in safe activities for fun and exercise. He has participated in horseback riding, wheelchair soccer and kayaking. When we have gone for hikes he has always been pushed in a manual chair or used his power wheelchair. When we went to the Red Apple Farm outing we brought Nate’s walker and he was able to transfer from his power chair to the Grit Freedom Chair without having to be physically lifted. After getting into the Freedom Chair he was able to propel himself independently.
Donate toward the Community Chair
$2,135 out of $3,000 Raised
Each chair costs $3,000 to purchase. This fundraiser is in hopes to raise AT LEAST enough money for these 2 chairs for Nate & Andy, BUT this fundraiser will be an open ending fundraiser so that IF we can raise more then the total cost of $6,000 ($3,000 each chair) then we want to have more chairs, hopefully at least 2, available at all times at OIC (Orange Innovation Center) 131 West Main St, Orange for others to go and sign out a chair for the day and be able to enjoy these chairs and our trails!!!
Please help us achieve this goal so we can give back to our veterans and they can get out and enjoy our beautiful trails.
Any donation is helpful and don't forget to SHARE SHARE SHARE this fundraiser, the more people who share, the more people who know and can donate / share, it ALL helps!!!
