At Wheelers Van Rentals, it is our pleasure to make transportation easy and affordable for our mobility impaired friends so that they can focus on more important things, like spending quality time with friends and families creating memories. We strive to ensure that each customer is pleased with our service which is why it brings us so much joy to hear from a happy customer.
We are honored that one of our customers, Ralf from FOX Network, used our services while celebrating one special family from Oregon, The Weimers. For the past few years, Ryan Weimer goes all out for Halloween creating an elaborate Halloween costume that incorporates his son Keaton’s wheelchair.
This year, Keaton wanted to be “How to Train Your Dragon” so Ryan created a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the ambitious Halloween costume project. The campaign was fully funded and Keaton’s wheelchair was successfully turned into a dragon.
With the remaining money from the campaign, The Weimer family started a non-profit called Magic Wheelchair to help create unique Halloween costumes for other young people who use wheelchairs in the future and raise awareness for Muscular Dystrophy.
FOX was so inspired by their story that they provided The Weimers with a trip to Los Angeles and a fully paid vacation to Universal Studios.
A heartfelt thank you goes out to Ralf from FOX for taking the time to send us this kind note below.
I just wanted to thank you once again for everything. The family had a terrific week and it was our honor to take care of them. With your help, everything worked out so wonderful.
Should I ever have a need again for a specialized vehicle, I will of course call you guys first.
Thank you, and have a great rest of the week!
