May is National Mobility Awareness Month (NMAM) and all of us at VMI are excited to celebrate. We’ve partnered with the National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association (NMEDA) to campaign around the theme “Life Moving Forward”.
This special month is a time to celebrate the perseverance and daily triumphs of people living with disabilities. In addition to recognizing these amazing individuals, National Mobility Awareness Month unites the mobility industry and furthers our efforts to produce life-changing solutions for people with disabilities.
And did we mention this is your chance to win?
National Mobility Awareness Month Local Heroes Contest
NMEDA defines Local Heroes as “people who volunteer, educate, advocate, achieve and persevere”. Local Heroes might be independent wheelchair users, caregivers, veterans with disabilities or anyone else living a life without limits despite disabilities.
If you are a Local Hero or know someone you’d like to nominate, head over to MobilityAwarenessMonth.com and share your story. Submissions are open until May 31 and NMEDA will be giving away four free wheelchair accessible vehicles to four Local Heroes.
We’re proud to announce that VMI is donating one of our Honda Odyssey Northstar vans and can’t wait to meet the Local Hero that wins it!
