The Darrell Gwynn Foundation Wheelchair Donation Program

Since the organization was formed, the Darrell Gwynn Foundation, in conjunction with its partner Sunrise Medical, has been donating new, power wheelchairs to children and young adults in need across the country. The Foundation receives many requests from people asking for assistance in getting a wheelchair for themselves or a family member who cannot otherwise receive one. The cost of a new chair can be alarmingly expensive and coupled with the other numerous costs associated with spinal cord injuries and debilitating diseases, it can be troublesome to purchase a new wheelchair. On average, a power wheelchair can run approximately $10,000.  Unfortunately, insurance does not always cover the expense. 

Having the right wheelchair is of the utmost importance to those who suffer from spinal cord injuries and other debilitating diseases.  Wheelchairs serve as legs for those who cannot walk. DGF works closely with its recipients’ physical therapists and doctors to custom fit the recipient with a wheelchair that will properly fit their needs and abilities.   

To date, the DGF Wheelchair Donation Program, with the assistance of Sunrise Medical, has provided over 25 new wheelchairs to underprivileged youths and young adults, valued at over a quarter of a million dollars. 

"Words can’t express how grateful I am to you, your family and the Darrell Gwynn Foundation. I am humbled to be the recipient of the Darrell Gwynn Foundation/Sunrise Medical Quickie wheelchair. Now that I’ve been in the chair for a few weeks, everything is starting to feel more normal and routine. The chair and new technology are helping in many ways. My neck pain, fatigue and stress level are already benefiting from the chair."

- Jo Donlin, Wheelchair recipient
