We’re Moving! Our Skokie Van Showroom is Relocating to Niles Illinois

Workers are completing the final renovations at our new location at 9207 North Milwaukee Ave, Niles IL 60714. The building was once home to a bakery that specialized in making bread.

On February 27th 2017, we are relocating our current location in Skokie, Illinois to Niles. The new state-of-the-art facility gives us the opportunity to showcase a large selection of mobility solutions – including the new Accessible Pacifica.

Our new location will be at 9207 North Milwaukee Avenue, Niles, IL 60714. The team you know and love will still be here to help you find the solution that best fits your physical needs and lifestyle. In addition, our NMEDA ‘QAP’ certified service department is always here to ensure trouble-free operation of existing adaptive equipment.

Whether you’re in the market for a new vehicle, just want to take a peek at the new Pacifica, or need a mobility maintenance inspection, our team is here to ensure you connect with what matters most.

Please contact us with questions regarding our move or to schedule your next service appointment at our new location.

Catching up with “Curb Free Cory Lee”

Cory-Lee-HelsinkiIn the spring of 2015, Cory Lee was featured on the front of MobilityWork’s annual InMotion newsletter. Cory is a travel enthusiast, a dedicated blogger, and a wonderful advocate for improving accessibility worldwide. He was featured after renting an accessible van from MobilityWorks and winning our Instagram contest. Since then, Cory has been a busy man travelling all over the globe!

His 2016 started with a snowy trip to Helsinki, Finland. Upon his arrival, Cory knew that he had to check out the top rated TripAdvisor destination of Suomenlinna. This small island and former military fort is just a 15 minute accessible ferry ride away from Helsinki.  While on the island, Cory enjoyed breathtaking views of historic churches, monuments and was able to warm up in the island’s museum and coffee shops.

Cory’s next adventure in 2016 had been on his bucket list for a long time! While in Las Vegas, he was able to ride in an accessible hot air balloon. (Watch the video of his ride here) Cory was surprised with how smooth the entire process was, even the landing in a rocky field next to a shopping plaza. The crew from “Love is in the Air Ballooning” met them at the land site where they all enjoyed breakfast and a traditional champagne toast. A few months later Cory was back in a hot air balloon, this time over the Negev Desert while visiting Israel.

One of Cory’s most inspiring trips last year was to Kruger National Park in South Africa. Going on a Safari was another life long dream that Cory was able to cross off his bucket list in 2016. He was one of 3 wheelchair users in the group that was offered by the travel company Epic Enabled. While on the safari, Cory spotted tigers, elephants, giraffes and rhinos to name a few of the exotic wildlife they encountered.

In 2017 Cory Lee plans to visit Scandinavia, Russia and return to the Mall of America in Minneapolis. To keep up with his incredible accessible adventures visit www.curbfreewithcorylee.com  or visit his Facebook Page.

Moving Others Forward

Travis-Roy1Eleven seconds into the first game of Travis Roy’s collegiate hockey career, he went head first into the boards cracking his fourth vertebrae. Since that day over 20 years ago, Travis has worked relentlessly to help others recover from spinal cord injuries. His accessible van from MobilityWorks allows Travis to travel all over the country delivering motivational speeches and making appearances.

The Travis Roy Foundation is dedicated to enhancing the lives of individuals with spinal cord injuries by providing adaptive equipment, and to finding a cure through increased funding of research. Their foundation has awarded over $2 million in grants to leading researchers and scientists.

After the injury occurred, Travis received nationwide media attention which he used to jumpstart the foundation. While staying at several rehabilitation centers, he met families that were struggling to have their basic needs met. This helped develop the foundation’s core values of independence and hope.

Shortly after finishing the recovery process, he wrote his book titled “Eleven Seconds”. It focuses on Travis’s determination to defy all odds before and after his injury. His foundation also hosts several annual events including hockey games, dances and dinners.

MobilityWorks of Londonderry is very proud to call Travis a client and friend. He recently purchased his fourth accessible van from one of our most experienced Certified Mobility Consultants, Roger Lajeunesse. When Travis flies to Florida to visit his parents, he also rents from our Orlando location.
