The Power of the Paramobile!
Check out these adaptive golf carts which allow paralyzed and amputee individuals the ability to not only golf again but participate in a wide variety of activities, even sip and puff archery! Kali’s Cure is proud to have presented two paramobiles to Ft. Belvoir where our veterans recovering at the Warrior Transition Unit or Walter Reed and those who live in the area will now have the opportunity to join other wounded veterans on the course. As you know, Kali’s Cure is a strong believer, based on personal experience, in intense physical rehabilitation (which is often achievable through participation in sporting activities) as a way to regain strength and regenerate nerves.
It is our goal to raise $22,000, before our August 6th golf outing, to purchase a third paramobile for our wounded veterans in Southern Michigan, after making its first appearance in Charlevoix where it would return each year for the annual event! If you would like to contribute to this effort, please make your donation to Kali’s Cure and make sure to indicate it is for the “paramobile” or you may do so on your registration/contribution form (again, indicating the amount you wish to be used for the paramobile).
It’s hard to picture these in action but take a look at the makeshift cart Col. Gadson used at last year’s event compared to the individual standup cart invented by pro golfer and retired Marine, Anthony Netto. Once you see the paramobile in action, we are sure you will be committed to supporting our endeavor to help donate more paramobiles across the country! Thank you for your consideration and we look forward to seeing you at the outing.
