To celebrate Disability Awareness Month, Joni and Friends, KWAVE, and Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa will cohost a fun-filled family day dedicated to increasing disability public awareness.
This event will take place Saturday, March 25th from 10:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa, 3800 Fairview Street, Santa Ana, CA 92704.
The afternoon will include a complimentary lunch (served between 12:00 and 12:40 p.m.) and an inspirational message from Joni Eareckson Tada, Founder and CEO of Joni and Friends who has lived with quadriplegia in a wheelchair since she became paralyzed in a diving accident in 1967.
Representatives will provide information about outreaches and resources for people impacted by disability.
There will also be a first-time public reveal and demonstration of a new innovative wheelchair, designed in partnership with Joni and Friends and soon to be available for international distribution by the organization. This pediatric/small adult wheelchair exceeds capabilities typically available in developing countries including a market-leading adjustment range to accommodate growth, support, and durability. Its tilt-in-space feature allows the wheelchair to grow with its occupant.
Distribution of this wheelchair model will provide life-changing mobility to recipients.
Spokespersons from the Joni and Friends team will be available for interviews regarding our Wheels for the World™ program, Family Retreats, and other opportunities for disability outreach.
