Congratulations to Scholarship Recipient Michael Walthall on his academic accomplishment! A note from Michael:
"Last Sunday, I was able to stand at my college graduation from DeVry University to receive a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration. Without the Will2Walk Foundation, it would've been impossible for me to have this standing frame wheelchair. Thank you!"

"Will2Walk impacted my life in a major way because they helped me get back on my feet, literally. I am absolutely in love with my brand new standing frame wheelchair and use it for day-to-day activities such as therapy, exercise and fitness, cleaning, cooking, standing, and hard-to-reach places. I'm now able to look someone in the face for a normal conversation. I can really see improvement in quality of living, and I owe it all to the Will2Walk Foundation!"

"Thank you for the generous grant that allowed me to obtain a shower chair - it works beautifully! After being injured in a surfing accident in August 2017, getting this shower chair was the first time I was able to sit in the shower since I was hospitalized. The shower chair is wonderful and I cannot express to you how grateful I am!"

"After living for some time confined to a power chair, I missed the freedom of going anywhere with friends. After multiple attempts to get a manual chair, a friend told me about Will2Walk where I applied and was awarded a scholarship. I love the convenience of being able to get in any car - it gives me so much more freedom. Thanks so much, Will2Walk - you’ve changed my life for the better."

Scholarship Recipient Sidney Voss of Wisconsin | Awarded $2,800 | Manual Wheelchair
