My Journey with GRIT

When I started experiencing progressive and debilitating physical symptoms around the time I turned 24, I wasn’t quite sure what the rest of my life would look like. I had always been very active, particularly enjoying outdoor activities, and I saw everything I loved being taken away from me. I had to leave the job I had at the time because I couldn’t safely and adequately perform my duties anymore. I was waiting for answers and treatment for my illness, but doctors remained baffled. Eventually, I decided I couldn’t wait anymore. I didn’t want to miss out on life and all it had to offer, so I started to research adaptive outdoor athletics. During this research period I discovered the GRIT Freedom Chair.

Introducing: The Freedom Chair Kid Kit

We've had a lot of requests for Freedom Chairs in kid sizes, but kids grow quickly, and with such a wide variety of sizing it would be impossible to make the right size for every child.  With our new Kid Kit, small riders can continue to use their Freedom Chair as they grow.
