National Mobility Awareness Month

Every year we encourage people with disabilities to embody the spirit of Life Moving Forward by raising awareness of the mobility solutions for those living with disabilities. Whether you are living with a disability or have dedicated your time to helping someone who is, we want to hear what makes them a Local Hero for a chance to win a free wheelchair accessible vehicle. (#NMAM14) www.MobilityAwarenessMonth.com

We would like to thank #MV1 and their generous donation for making today possible! Repin to show your support for the Local Heroes and build awareness for those living with #disabilities.

Dave Hubbard, NMEDA's CEO shared our excitement with the media and reminded them of the importance of local communities getting involved in addressing the mobility challenges for those living with #disabilities

Repin if you agree this is what Local Heroes look like! #NMAM14 #NMEDA
