Jonah E

Jonah has gotten to take his trackchair hiking and to the ocean, river and lake beaches. His regular chair will not get him to these places, which has really limited what we can and can’t do with him. Also allows him to go in the woods and down in our field...

Brik J

Brik J

The action track chair has opened up a new world for Brik. He has been able to go places independently that otherwise he had to rely on others to take him. He gets out in it every chance he gets and has such a blast! Amanda Jacobs

Bryan B

I sustained a T-6 complete spinal cord injury in July of 2010. I have been limited with outdoor mobility and opportunities since my injury. Being an avid outdoorsman, it has been difficult having my outdoor activities limited and not being able to function outdoors independently. I would often come across situations where I was unable to partake in what friends and family are doing because of the terrain...

Dustin P

In 2007, a shallow water swimming accident forever changed Dustin P’s life. He longed for the day when he could get back into woods and rough areas without getting his regular wheelchair stuck in the mud before he got very far. Now, his brand new Action Trackchair has made it possible to head out and search for deer antler sheds and to collect fire wood for the family fire pit. He reports...

Denis Lemay

I am 59 years old and have been married 38 years. I fell off staging and broke my neck in 2007. I tried an Action Trackchair a few years ago and I loved it! Having a handicap minivan there was no way I could transport it. I kept the brochure around for a few years with me and showed it to people and said, “I am going to have one of these someday.” Last spring, I noticed that my brother-in-law...

Katie Clower

Our daughter, Katie, is 10 years old and lives with Spastic Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy. Her diagnosis has never slowed her down though, in spite of having many surgeries at various times. I was raised in a family of hunters, my husband is into hunting & our oldest son is into hunting. We all love to visit the beach or the mountains to go fishing or camping. As Katie has gotten older, the beach was becoming harder...

Jeff Edwards

In February of 2015, I suffered a C7 burst fracture in a swimming accident in Mexico. I received medical care in Mexico for 24 hours. Then we decided it would be best to get back to Minnesota where I could get the medical care I needed. Within hours of landing in Minnesota, I had surgery ...

Norma Hofpar

Hi, my name is Norma. I lost my right leg and I have a bad knee which makes me sit in a chair most of the time. I used to be stuck at home, on the deck or just on the driveway. I was not able to help with chores, work in the garden or even pick fruit from my orchard, or go to my grandsons’ cross county meets. I couldn’t play outside in the yard with the grandkids...

Cody Baker

I have always enjoyed the outdoors. Actually, I hate to be inside. I have raced motocross since the age of 4. This year (2016), I was practicing for an event at a local track that I’ve both practiced and raced at many times. We are still unclear what happened exactly, but I crashed my dirt bike and I’m now a paraplegic...

Dustin Matthews

Kenny Mills

In 2007, Kenny broke his neck when he fell 36 feet off a tank while working at Calumet Oil Refinery in Princeton, LA. He became a C6-C7 quadriplegic and has been in a wheelchair ever since. However, that has not stopped him from continuing to do many of the things he loves such as deer hunting...

Austin Pille

It was my senior year in high school, on September 30, 2013, I was in the backseat of a friend's new Mustang when he lost control, crashed and rolled. I broke my neck and injured my spinal cord. I couldn’t feel anything from the chest down. I thought this could not be real...

Katie

I am honored and grateful to have received a grant from the Action Mobility Foundation. Hi, my name is Katie. I was recently paralyzed a year and a half ago from a horseback riding accident. I am a military wife, use to my husbands’ deployments, and a mother of 3 great kids...

Eric Boerboom

My name is Eric. I am 32 years old and was born with a neuro- muscular disease call Friedreich’s Ataxia. Over the years my disease has progressed to the point that it has made outdoor mobility for me very challenging...

Lloyd Kalfs

Prior to my automobile accident in 2013, I was extremely active and pursued many outdoor activities. I enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping, horseback riding, and just about anything else that would get me outside and off the beaten path...

It is with a joyful heart that I write this letter to let you know how your gift has helped me to realize and enjoy my time in the outdoors. I am fifty-four years old and have been confined to a wheelchair due to paralysis for the past twenty-seven years; half of my life...
