Putting a smile on the face of every child in a wheelchair

Magic Wheelchair is a nonprofit organization that turns wheelchairs into the envy of every child. Ryan & Lana Weimer, the founders of Magic Wheelchair, have five children, three of which, have been born with a form of Muscular Dystrophy called Spinal muscular Atrophy and will require the use of wheelchairs for the entirety of their lives. Each Halloween Ryan has made the biggest baddest costumes he could for his kids. These wheelchair costumes have been tremendously successful. They have even been featured in newspapers, on television, and the subject of a very successful Kickstarter campaign. Magic Wheelchair seeks to do this for every child in a wheelchair. The children pick the costumes and we are proud to showcase the uniqueness and individuality of each child.
