The SCOOTER Store Donates Scooter to North Carolina Student With Brain Cancer
Date:6/2/2009

CASHIERS, N.C., June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Typical ninth graders are worried about fitting in at their new high schools, staying in touch with friends from middle school, or keeping up with the latest popular trends--they should not be concerned about getting from one class to the next or other mobility issues. But Luis Magana is not a typical ninth grader, and neither are his classmates.

Although Magana was diagnosed with brain cancer almost four years ago, he continues to attend school on a regular basis but can no longer move around the school on his own. Seeing what a difficult time he was having, Magana's classmates at Blue Ridge Early College School wrote a letter to the Rotary Club of Cashiers Valley and asked for help obtaining a scooter for their classmate to help him get around.

Today the Rotary Club of Cashiers Valley accepted a three-wheel Rally scooter from The SCOOTER Store on behalf of Magana. On hand at the presentation from The SCOOTER Store's Knoxville, Tenn., operations was Mobility Manager Derek McCarty. The scooter was donated under The SCOOTER Store's "Gift of Mobility" program, which provides mobility equipment and assistance to those who do not have the resources or insurance to obtain power wheelchairs and scooters.

"In his special way, Luis has been an active member of our Interact Club, a service club for 14 to 18 year-olds, for the past three years," said Chuck Bolognia, sponsor of the Rotary Club of Cashiers Valley's Interact Club. "He is always wearing a smile as wide as a pumpkin on Halloween. Nothing can stop him."

Last year, Magana helped raise money for a new playground adjacent to Blue Ridge. As this playground came to life, he became more and more restricted on his ability to move. The school's International Awareness Club and the Rotary's Interact Club recently teamed up to build a ramp and deck at Magana's home to prepare for his limited
