May marks the third annual National Disability Awareness Month. To celebrate, the National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association (NMEDA) has kicked off it’s Disability Awareness Month Local Heroes Campaign.
The campaign celebrates individuals with a disability who work to raise awareness of mobility solutions in their community. NMEDA will give away at least three wheelchair accessible vans to selected “local heroes” who have overcome the challenges of living with a disability, and who embody the spirit of Life Moving Forward.
According to NMEDA, local heroes can be defined a people who volunteer, educate, advocate, achieve and persevere. If that sounds like you, or someone you love, go to www.mobilityawarenessmonth.com and enter. Voting begins March 11 and ends May 9. Good Luck!
