FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Wheelchairs for Warriors to “Roll Strong” for the Veteran Community
Gathering of Leaders Underway to Rally for an Unmet Need and Make History
Houston, Texas (May 16, 2018) – There seems to be so many needs within the veterans communities that affect the veterans and their families alike from job placement, PTSD, housing, education, health care, finances, and veterans with disabilities.
The Founders of Wheelchairs for Warriors Crystal Laramore and Heidi Hansing and their team discovered the need for wheelchairs for front-line defenders (veterans and emergency responders). “The more we researched, the more we discovered a wheelchair is not just a wheelchair for a veteran who has been severely maimed/injured in the line-of-duty. The wheelchairs we are bringing to our deserving warriors have been custom engineered for each battle-tested warrior that brings functionality and adds value back to their life,” said Crystal Laramore.
This event will be attended by anyone who is interested in being a catalyst for warriors who are in the wrong wheelchair for their life-mission. Attendees will be inspired and challenged to be a part of history.

Where: Redneck Country Club – 11110 W. Airport Boulevard, Stafford, Texas 77477
