May is National Mobility Awareness Month and the Non-Profit group, National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association or NMEDA, is highlighting Local Heroes in communities all across America who live with restrictive mobility issues. Over 18 million people in North America are currently living life to the fullest despite having mobility issues. As a way to raise awareness in communities regarding solutions to make everything more accessible for people with disabilities, NMEDA is currently accepting stories from the Local Heroes which are on display here.
People can vote for Local Heroes and the top 5% of vote earners have a chance to win a brand new Custom Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle, generously provided by Chrysler, Toyota, and Honda.
Above is Robert Miner, who was awarded a 2012 Toyota Sienna after being featured as a Local Hero in last year’s awareness month. This year, DeliveryMaxx is proud to be able to voice support for a Hero in our area, Justin Fetz.
Justin is a 29 year old who lives in Van Alystne, Texas and spends his entire year helping raise awareness and providing encouragement to people living with disabilities as he works for a local non-profit organization called Camp Craig Allen. He is a very great and inspiring young man who this writer is fortunate to know, you can read his Local Hero story here. We invite everyone to please give Justin a Vote and help him have a better chance at winning a much needed new vehicle. Voting will conclude on Friday, May 10, 2013 and the winners will be announced on May 25th so don’t wait, vote now! And from everyone at DeliveryMaxx, good luck to Justin and all of the Local Heroes across the globe!
