NMEDA Introduces National Mobility Awareness Month for Seniors, Veterans and People with Disabilities
Date:2/23/2012

TAMPA, Fla., Feb. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Today at the 21st Annual National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association (NMEDA) Conference in Phoenix, the new National Mobility Awareness Month was unveiled, which will be celebrated throughout the U.S. and Canada in May 2012. The goal of the awareness month is to teach seniors, veterans and people with disabilities how to live an active and mobile lifestyle through the use of wheelchair accessible vehicles and adaptive mobility equipment.

In celebration of the awareness month, NMEDA has also created an online contest awarding three winners customized wheelchair accessible vehicles to meet their needs. Program sponsors such as Toyota Motor Sales, USA, Inc.; SanTan Honda in Chandler, Ariz.; and Chrysler, LLC have rallied together to provide the vehicles, which will later be customized by NMEDA manufacturers – BraunAbility, Vantage Mobility International (VMI) and Bruno Independent Living Aids.

Those eligible to win the wheelchair accessible vehicles are distinguished as Local Heroes, who will be encouraged to submit either written or videotaped stories of how they've overcome or are dealing with mobility issues. Caregivers, friends and family members are also welcome to submit entries for others. Stories will be accepted on MobilityAwarenessMonth.com from March 18 - May 13, 2012, and voting will occur from April 1 - May 13, 2012.
