Portland, December 7th, 2014. The Wheel to Walk Foundation celebrated its ‘Million Dollar Luncheon’ because the nonprofit has awarded over $1 million dollars in medical equipment and services to children with disabilities. The afternoon luncheon drew 250 people and raised over $22,000 which will help children with special needs. Sandy Getman is the Executive Director who started this non-profit over 20 years ago when her granddaughter was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy. Sandy and her organization have helped many children and their families. By purchasing necessary equipment, children enjoy more inclusive family activities which helps strengthen their bodies and spirits. The Wheel to Walk Foundation’s goal is to see that no child with special needs go without the necessary equipment to help them flourish and reach their full potential.
