At Rollx Vans, we are proud to offer an incredible service to the millions of people who rely on some type of mobility device to get around. It’s a service that we have gladly provided for decades, and hope to provide for many more to come.
Charitable By Nature
Our company started with a bit of goodwill when our founder, Wade Harris, donated two fully accessible Dodge vans and 50,000 dollars to a small transportation company for the disabled and senior communities.
After seeing the impact of his donation, Harris went on to form the company that we know and love today. Since Rollx Vans opened its doors, we have provided wheelchair accessible vans to people all across the country, and have even sent vans to locations outside of the United States.
Partnering with the Best
While Rollx Vans provides a means for people to get around, many of our partner organizations spend hundreds of millions of dollars every year trying to eradicate, prevent and at the very least treat many of the diseases and conditions that send people to our company.
And for that we are very thankful.
Over the years, Rollx Vans, along with many other generous individuals and families, have donated billions to these charitable organizations, and we just wanted to take a minute to recognize them for all that they do.
Among the many organizations that we have partnered with over the years are:
The Muscular Dystrophy Association: MDA
From Lou Gehrig’s Disease (ALS) to motor neuron disease and more, the MDA website lists over 90 of types of muscle diseases that affect people all over the world, and the MDA has worked for over 60 years to provide help and relief for affected patients and their families.
National Multiple Sclerosis Society: MS
Recognized as one of Forbes’ top 50 largest US charities, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society spent more than 193 million dollars on charitable services in 2014. These services include funding medical research for MS and providing aid for those who are affected by it.
Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation
After portraying a fictional superhero on the big screen, Christopher Reeve became an actual hero when he and his wife Dana became advocates for those who suffer from paralysis and spinal cord injuries. According to the website, their foundation “is dedicated to curing spinal cord injury by funding innovative research, and improving the quality of life for people living with paralysis through grants, information and advocacy.”
Too Many to Name
We could go on for days talking about our amazing partners and how thankful we are for all the work that they do. To see a full list, which includes everything from Paralyzed Veterans of America to the U.S. Electric Wheelchair Hockey Association, see our partners page.
