Rider Spotlight: Keith and the Boys

Posted by GRIT Freedom Chair on Feb 20th 2023

Lately we've been excited to see more and more successful Go Fund Me campaigns for Freedom Chairs being completed. Thanks to Keith P., we have an amazing opportunity to share the positive outcomes of these campaigns.

Keith launched his Go Fund Me campaign on April 7th:

Keith successfully reached his goal very quickly, placed his order, and received his new GRIT Freedom Chair. About a week ago he posted a message and a new video to his page, to show his appreciation to everyone contributed:

Having my new Freedom Chair has been wonderful. Like any new piece of adaptive equipment it has come with a bit of a learning curve, but just like other equipment, the more I use it the easier it becomes.

The boys and I have gotten out and about in the yard several times, and although I'm not moving as fast as I'd like to be (yet!) it is a blast. It's hard to express the feelings that accompany the ability to tackle terrain under my own steam that was previously inaccessible, and to be able to do it with my boys just tops it off. James especially likes to ride in my lap and pump the levers with me.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again, I'll say it a thousand times more if you'll listen, thank you, Thank You, THANK YOU!!! Keith

We couldn't be happier for Keith and the boys!
