Calling All Heroes
Thank you to the more than 4 million people who submitted and voted for their Local Heroes as part of National Mobility Awareness Month. Entering a Local Hero story and Voting is now closed and the top 10% of the entries in each of the categories (caregivers, seniors and general) with the most votes are being reviewed by an independent panel of judges.
The winners of National Mobility Awareness Month have been contacted officially ending the Local Heroes Contest for 2014!
While we are very happy for these 4 lucky winners – who will be announced next week – we are even more excited to continue to encourage the other contestants and those living with disabilities in reaching their mobility goals.
At least 10 other individuals throughout the contest period have been donated vehicles through other means. We hope these individuals will inspire you to continue to share your story in your local community and through online crowdfunding sites like Indiegogo and GoFundMe. Contact your local NMEDA Dealer who may also know of resources that you can take advantage of.
To all of the remaining contestants we want to encourage you to Never Give Up! We are a community and we are all in this together.
