What You'll Get

The Issue: Cost of Wheelchairs

In the same way that children outgrow their clothes, children with physical disabilities can outgrow their wheelchairs and other medical equipment. On average, a manual wheelchair for a child costs anywhere from $4,000 to $8,000—and a power wheelchair can cost up to $20,000—which can put a financial strain on families, particularly those who are under-insured or uninsured. Yet without the proper equipment, children have a limited ability to participate in their community.

The Campaign: Providing Refurbished Wheelchairs for Kids

All donations to this Grassroots campaign will be used by Kids Mobility Network to provide refurbished wheelchairs for children with disabilities. For every $200 raised, Kids Mobility Network can provide one child with a refurbished wheelchair customized to his or her specific needs. Delivered in the same manner as new equipment, the wheelchairs will help children be more independent and interact more with their peers, and thereby enhance their self esteem.

About Kids Mobility Network

Peter and Christy Kopp know the importance of children's mobility firsthand. Their daughter, Kayla, is physically disabled, and her wheelchair was her source of freedom. But when Kayla outgrew her first wheelchair, the Kopps knew there were other children out there who could benefit from it—they just didn't know how to reach them. So they began the Kids Mobility Network, which refurbishes and redistributes durable medical equipment for children with physical disabilities.

After collecting idle wheelchairs and other medical equipment from donors, the Kids Mobility Network works it back to like-new condition and matches it to an applicant whose needs it meets. This includes equipment ranging from manual or power wheelchairs to walkers and adaptive bikes. To date, Kids Mobility Network has served more than 900 children with disabilities, providing more than $3 million worth of equipment.
