Here at GRIT we believe that we go further together. We collaborated with a range of partners to bring the Freedom Chair to life, and we're continuing to collaborate with people and organizations who can help us the Freedom Chair to riders around the country.
Thanks to the support of Rob Carnes, a Navy veteran and long-time supporter of GRIT, we were able to donate a Freedom Chair to VAST (Veteran Adaptive Sports & Training). Based outside of Portland, ME, VAST's goal is to promote the lifelong health and well-being of veterans with disabilities through regular participation in physical activities and sports. From archery to wheelchair basketball to hand-cycling, there's something for everybody.
Thank you to Rob for making this donation, and to VAST for providing such an awesome program. We can't wait to see what you do with your Freedom Chair!
