Putting a smile on the face of every child in a wheelchair
Ryan and Lana Weimer, the founders of Magic Wheelchair, have five children, three of whom were born with Spinal Muscular Atrophy, which requires the use of wheelchairs for the entirety of their lives.
Each Halloween, Ryan made the biggest, “baddest” costumes he could for his sons, Keaton and Bryce, for many years. Once news of these costumes spread, Ryan began receiving requests from parents around the world asking if he would transform their kids’ wheelchairs into “magic”…and then, in 2015, Ryan and Lana decided to make that happen and started the non-profit organization that seeks to put a smile on the face of every child in a wheelchair.
Thanks to you, we were able to build 8 EPIC Costumes in 2015
We are so LUCKY to have your support! With your help, we will be able to spread the Magic as we build more costumes in 2016.
There is nothing quite as magical as seeing a smile on the face of a child in a wheelchair and knowing that you had a part in it. Donate or Volunteer with Magic Wheelchair today.
We look forward to building 2016 with you.
