National Mobility Awareness Month
The National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association (NMEDA) and our sponsors: Fiat Chrysler Automobiles
(FCA), American Honda Motor Company, BraunAbility and Vantage Mobility International (VMI) have
teamed up to giveaway one wheelchair accessible vehicle with conversions for a veteran with spinal cord
injury or disease.
General Selection Process Information
The producers will be selecting participants for a TV special based on the emotional impact of their injury,
disability or illness to them, the ability to articulate on camera their personal story, and the cooperation
provided to assist producers in filming the participant at home, work, rehab or other production requests.
Initially, the participants will submit a completed questionnaire and a still photo. Once these questionnaires
are reviewed, approximately six participants will be elected. Then the producers will conduct a phone or
other electronic communication system interview by October 30, 2017. The producers may elect to visit
some of the finalists to further assist in the section process. One participant will be cast for the TV special
and in return will receive a wheelchair accessible vehicle or automotive mobility equipment.
Please note that this is not a competition or a contest or part of the Local Heroes program that the National
Mobility Equipment Dealers Association and their members have sponsored in the past.
