Wheels for Mr. Janke (JJ)
$32,420 of $30,000 goal
After years of driving his motorized wheelchair to and from work as a substitute teacher at Kelso High School Mr Janke's "ride" has finally expired. Insurance no longer covers repairs and its time for a new and improved wheelchair. Rain or shine Mr. Janke has been a part of Kelso classrooms for years. His presence has touched the lives of countless students/staff and now it's time to show our appreciation. Our goal is to raise $20,000 to cover the cost of a new chair which includes a funding cushion for future wheelchair repairs. Please share this goal with others in an effort to quickly raise the needed funds.
We ARE Kelso!
Travis Keeney lives with us and he has a nice power chair that he has only used maybe 4 times that he is willing to give to him. He also has a rack for the back of a vehicle to be able to transport the chair. Im not sure who to get a hold of to get it to him but we live in Vancouver. It has been sitting for a while so worse case scenario it might need a new battery if the one he has doesn't hold the charge from it sitting for so long. It is a really nice chair that just doesn't get used. He would love to give it to Mr Janke : )
I didn't donate as much as alot of people did but I'm honored to have been able to contribute at least a little. Mr. Jenke lived down the road from me for years and I always saw him zipping around in his chair I'm glad he'll be getting a new one! It's awesome how many people have helped so far! You guys are awesome!
One of the best teachers I've ever had, I honestly miss being in school only because of how amazing he made school. He was a great inspiration to many of us who had difficulty in school, I wish I could afford to donate but I can not. I can however offer these words, in the hopes others will donate and share this fundraiser page. Much love from this former student ☺
I see you have had a couple offers for free chairs. I also have on that I do not use any more. It is almost brand new. But it does need a new battery. You are more then welcome to have it if you want. Just message me and we can make arrangements to have it picked up.
I hope you make the goal his was one of my teacher in spanaway and he is a great man and has a heart of gold.
