John McConnell, a 14-year-old from Anchorage, Alaska, used the GRIT Freedom Chair to help fulfill his wish to participate in the reenactment of the Battle of Lexington and Concord, commemorating the start of the American Revolution.
"I like nature. It was very frustrating that I could not get out. When I got my chair it was amazing, I got back my Freedom. You can get out and do it! One trick in photography is making sure you are steady, with the wheelchair I can lock it up and I have my steadying post right there. It gives me the Freedom to go out there. "
