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 2014. The winners of National Mobility Awareness Month have been contacted, officially ending the Local Heroes Contest for 2014!
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. NMEDA is gearing up to get National Mobility Awareness Month 2015 underway and share yet another year of unbelievable prizes and outreach efforts within the mobility equipment and disability community. Keep in touch with us and be on the lookout for this year’s promotion, starting in April 2015 for your chance to win a Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle.
While we are very happy for our 4 lucky 2014 winners, we are even more excited to continue to encourage the other contestants and those living with disabilities in reaching their mobility goals.
At least 24 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 Dealers who may also know of resources that you can take advantage of.
