Congratulations to all of the 2016 National Mobility Awareness Month Winners!
Every year, National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association (NMEDA) hosts a National Mobility Awareness Month Local Heroes Contest, which encourages those with disabilities to lead active, mobile lifestyles. This year the contest closed with 928 Local Hero entries, which received a total of 1.1 million votes. These wheelchair accessible vans were sponsored by FCA US LLC, Toyota Mobility, and American Honda Motor Corporation, with conversions donated by Vantage Mobility International (VMI), BraunAbility, and ElDorado Mobility.
We are often asked to provide a list of our vehicles under a certain price range. People looking for vans under $25K is fairly common. While newer wheelchair vans can often be twice that much, MobilityWorks does carry a significant number of used vans that retail for under $25,000.
MobilityWorks will be exhibiting at the 2016 Chicago Abilities Expo Friday June 24 to Sunday June 26 at the Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Center.
Exhibit hours are from 11 AM to 5 PM Friday and Saturday, and 11 AM to 4 PM on Sunday. Admission is free and all are welcome to the event!
The Chicago Abilities Expo will feature the latest technology, informative workshops, demonstrations and more. Families, caregivers, professionals and seniors will enjoy the wide range of products and services for the disability community. The expo offers three days of resources and opportunities that you may not even know exist.
It was a perfect spring day on Thursday May 19th for Albany’s Grand Opening Event! Customers came out for the opportunity to learn more about the new products at MobilityWorks, enjoy a free lunch, and the chance to win exciting prizes. Cooper, Albany’s team “mascot”, was ready to greet customers at the door and enjoyed all of the attention. Vendors from all across the country (and even Canada) set up booths to meet with customers and display their latest mobility equipment.
Imagine a playground where every child can participate. A place where children of all abilities can play, socialize and dream together — fostering acceptance, friendship and understanding through play. For many children with disabilities this is just a dream.
“The playground will be great for the community. It will allow children with and without special needs to have a park built for everyone so all the children can have fun together”, said Villa Park General Manager Michael Pigoni. MobilityWorks is a proud supporting partner of The Playground for Everyone.
