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. 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".

In 2015, Ryan and Lana decided to make that happen and started Magic Wheelchair, the non-profit organization that seeks to put a smile on the face of every child in a wheelchair.

Vision & Mission

Vision & Mission

Our vision is to put a smile on the face of every child in a wheelchair by transforming their wheelchairs into awesomeness.

How We Do it

Kids, with their parents’ permission, submit a 1-3 minute video telling us what they want to be for Halloween, a parade, or another big day and why.


The Costume

Being in a wheelchair can be tough so we want to make something epic of which the kids and designers can be proud.


It takes a large group of dedicated and passionate people to make the dreams of kids come true.
