Scott Shelby, MobilityWorks of Tampa General Manager, congratulates Joe Wilcher and his son Austin at our Tampa Florida store.

MobilityWorks was proud to be a part of the recent work done by the The Jett Foundation to help out a Tampa military family in need.

Austin Wilcher, a 12-year-old with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, needs to use a power wheelchair or scooter for his mobility.
