Why this event?

This deeply impactful event is more than just a CSR program; it is the knowledge that you have made a real positive difference in someone’s life.

A collaborative team-building exercise for your entire group, this event emphasizes that working together towards a common goal can help achieve better results.

After an informative opening presentation, teams will use The Wheelchair Project app on iPads to learn more about a particular past wheelchair recipient. They will do a “case study” and answer specific questions to earn a wheel-spoke safety cover to personalize and decorate. The spoke guard gets attached to the actual chair that they are sponsoring and reduces the fear and stigma that a wheelchair can produce for the recipient.

Participants also get the chance to ride a sample wheelchair over a small course simulating the conditions they would experience in a developing country, providing more depth to their understanding of their wheelchair recipient. Finally, teams will make a short presentation of their case study to the entire group. A moving closing presentation by the facilitator rounds out this fantastic CSR event.

Your team will feel good about themselves, their colleagues, their company, and what they have all accomplished together. This is not just a short-term feeling – this event will be remembered for years to come.

All chairs will be donated through The Walkabout Foundation. Each team will receive a photo of the recipient of their sponsored chair. This amazing organization has enabled over 16,000 wheelchairs to be distributed to people in need.
