For Everything There Is a Season

For Everything There Is a Season

The great thing about the outdoors is that no matter what time of the year it is, there is always something to do. Sometimes you have to adapt to the weather or the temperature in order to properly enjoy things, though. Luckily, my GRIT Freedom Chair is a versatile, all terrain wheelchair. It allows me to enjoy all types of activities no matter what the seasons throw at me.

America the Beautiful: National Parks Access Pass

For an outdoor enthusiast like myself, the allure of a National Park is hard to resist. The National Park Service preserves natural, cultural, and historical sites all across the United States. Some of the most breathtaking landscapes are within these park boundaries. Thankfully, the National Park Service has taken it upon themselves to offer a FREE lifetime pass for US Citizens that have a permanent disability. It allows you to be admitted for FREE to more than 2,000 federal recreation sites.

"Playing in the park with my grandson [is] just the best . . . [He's] just shy of 3 years old. If it were not for this chair, I could not have taken the trip through the Garden with my family. Feeling very blessed and grateful."

In Your Own Backyard

While the GRIT Freedom Chair gives you the opportunity to move beyond the pavement, you don’t have to go very far off the pavement to find an adventure. Sometimes the best adventures can be had right in your own backyard – or at least very near to that!
