Make a Wheel Difference

You can help a child go to school! "A young boy in Kenya fell from a tree and tragically broke his back. Without means to get around, this boy developed terrible infected pressure ulcers from laying for hours alone in the corner. But once he received a wheelchair--perfect for his size--he was able to go to school like his friends pictured above."

The Make a Wheel Difference fundraising event is a Walk-a-thon with the purpose of raising funds to send wheelchairs to Kenya and help prevent needless suffering. All Participants are welcome to walk in support of this important need, but Participants are encouraged to raise support by seeking sponsorship per lap around campus or for walking a certain amount of time.

Every $250 raised is one wheelchair for a child or adult!

We are also seeking Corporate Sponsors for this event with donations to cover the cost of wheelchairs as well as an opportunity for each sponsor to promote their business and be recognized for supporting children and families in need.

Come join us on January 13th at 11 a.m. and walk with us around campus to help children in Kenya.

Make a Wheel Difference will be held at LeTourneau University and will include food and corporate booths.

Come walk with us to raise money for children like him to gain a better life!
