GRIT Freedom Chair riders love how they can finally keep up with their family and friends, even in unpaved areas like parks, beaches, and yards. Summer is a great time for outdoor adventures with the people you love the most. What are you waiting for?

"I always assumed that when I had kids of my own I’d naturally share my love of the outdoors with them.

But God has other plans. Around the time my first child was born, I was diagnosed with progressive cerebellar ataxia, a serious neurological condition that, among other things, affected my ability to walk... Your chair changed all that. We went out. That may sound like nothing more than a simple family outing but it was something we thought we’d never be able to do. I was able to expose my children to the wonder of the outdoors, to carry on our family tradition.  I was able to give them meaningful childhood memories."
