Matthew's GRIT Freedom Chair

Hi, my name is Sara. A year ago I reconnected with Matthew in the midst of post season baseball excitement. We've spent the last year adventuring as much as possible but there's still so much we'd love to do. That's why I'm asking for your help in gifting Matthew with a GRIT Freedom Chair.

The GRIT freedom chair is an all-terrain wheelchair that was designed at MIT. It's said to be the most versatile wheelchair in the world, designed with a unique lever drive system that provides necessary leverage to traverse over terrains that we would never be able to journey on without it. For the sake of transparency, this chair will not be a "daily driver" for Matthew. Matthew's health insurance affords him a wheelchair for daily use and although it is a great chair, it doesn't allow for navigation everywhere. The GRIT freedom chair would allow Matthew to go on adventures that would never be possible with any other wheelchair. Unfortunately, insurance doesn't cover a device like this because it's a luxury, not a necessity. It's a luxury that I truly believe Matthew deserves. Join me in helping to ensure that Matthew can enjoy all that the outdoors have to offer.
