David Belrose, Mobility Manager, The SCOOTER Store, Philadelphia location

Sgt. Ed Schikel, The City of Philadelphia Police Department

WHAT: For more than 10 years, Stephanie Richardson, 56, couldn't get around her home because she couldn't maneuver her manual wheelchair and she needed a caregiver to go outside. Unable to walk due to the amputation of her legs, Ms. Richardson says that "God works in mysterious ways." She says her belief was confirmed by a 911 call and a concerned police officer that changed her life.

Confused by her medication one day, Ms. Richardson called for emergency help. Philadelphia Police Officer Edward Schikel responded to the call and was shocked to see that Ms. Richardson, although immobile, lacked a power chair. Upon learning that her insurance would not cover a power chair, and Ms. Richardson could not afford one, he vowed to get her a chair -- even if it meant spending his own money. Sgt. Schikel went straight to The SCOOTER Store for help. After just two phone calls, Officer Schikel and Ms. Richardson were amazed to learn that The SCOOTER Store would give her a free power wheelchair as part of its "Gift of Mobility" program.

The SCOOTER Store, the nation's leading provider of power wheelchairs and scooters, created its Gift of Mobility program in December 2002.

WHEN: Tuesday, January 15, 2008
