Wheelchairs 4 Kids
Tarpon Springs, Florida
Sometimes those who participate in fundraising events don’t get to see how their support directly affects those in need. But that wasn’t the case for golfers who supported Wheelchairs 4 Kids, a Florida-based organization dedicated to improving the lives of children with physical disabilities. A heartwarming moment at the organization’s annual Kimberly Knorr Memorial Celebrity Golf Tournament took participants’ breath away when a young boy received a new therapy trike. Since its inception eight years ago, Wheelchairs 4 Kids has fulfilled its mission by raising funds through the golf tournament and their Wheely Fun Days. Wheelchairs 4 Kids goes beyond providing disabled children with wheelchairs—their goal is to help every child with mobility challenges live life to the fullest. During this year’s golf tournament, nearly 130 attendees got the opportunity to golf with a local celebrity while sporting an embroidered cap. Wheelchairs 4 Kids received the fundraising promotional product through 4imprint’s one by one® grant. “Now the extra money we didn’t spend thanks to the grant can go back into the organization to help more children with mobility and accessibility,” said Executive Director Madeline Robinson.
