  3. QUESTION:
    free wheelchairs to train on for london marathon?
    does anyone know where i can find two free wheelchairs to train on and too use for the london marathon next year.
    any places or websites i can get two from (for free)
    ive emailed my local hospital but im not sure they will help me
    pleeease help me

    • ANSWER:
      The wheelchair users at the marathon are people that are already in wheelchairs for physical needs. To enter that stage you would need to already be wheelchair dependent.

      Why not take a look at the relevant sites for disabled sports people and have a good search and look to see where the racing wheelchairs actually come from. They are not the type that are issued by your local hospital but highly specialised lightweight kit.

  4. QUESTION:
    How are disabled persons treated?
    How are disabled persons treated in Korea? Is getting around in Seoul with wheelchair easy?
    How about the barrier-free facilities and transportation for disabled people? Do you see often the people using wheelchair in the street as much as western countries?
    Is Korea friendly country for the disabled people?
    Thx AxisofOddity. However, I wonder why I didn't see many wheelchairs in the street in Seoul.

    • ANSWER:
      I'm not certian on this one, but I have noticed that Korea doesn't seem as accessible as Canada to people with disabilites. Canada doesn't do a very good job either come to think of it.

      Many buildings in Korea (lower ones) don't have elevators. I never noticed buses for disabled people here. But I don't live in Seoul, I live in Jeju. I rarely see people in wheelchairs here, or at least not people commuting without a companion.

  5. QUESTION:
    What web sites could tell me how much money is actually used for charity and how much is used for expenses?
    I am doing a research on how much $ is actually used towards the needs and how much is spent for corprate in many charities. An example: MDA, Easter Seals, MS, Crusade for Children, Make a Wish Foundation... I know many times there is more money spent in corprate than in trying to find a cure. In my life MDA has not been of much assistance to a nephew besides offering his a free medical exam once a month. Its first come first serve basis and the kids are required to wait. They offer no help in wheelchairs, breathing machines or lifts. I am to persuade my audience...where to donate their money.

I have searched the internet up and down and cannot even find an online legal-library that is free to use.

      or go to an academic library and use their resources ( you may not be able to check out the books thou)

  7. QUESTION:
    jets/giants stadium tickets?
    I was told by a former friend that he gets free tickets because he uses a wheelchair. at some point there was a lawsuit because there was no wheelchair access.....teh settelment included free tickets for any wheelchair user that asked..

    who do I contact about getting tickets

    it's not the regular box office

    i cannot speak to teh former friend--there is a good reason why we are no longer friends
    I do not have time to navigate through countelss menus to find teh right person to ask--that is why I am asking here--

    WHO AT THE STADIUM do I call...
    i do have an email in--but am waiting for an answer...
    the person who wants the tickets is a full time chair user

    • ANSWER:
      Yes there is a list you can get on. I don't even know if you can get it thru the stadium. They send you 1 or 2 tix a year , thats what I get for the Giants anyway. Don't know about the Jets.
      After you sign up once you don't have to sign up again they just send them to you. I don't have the info because I signed up a long time ago, I won't get anything from them until its closer to the season. I'll try and see if I can find the address or number. You have to prove you are in a wheelchair not just disabled I think. Are you in a chair?

  8. QUESTION:
    I rebuild and repair wheelchairs for anyone who needs one,?

I tahnk you all for your time and efforts, Stephan K.
    I live in Anna, Texas, And I do repair and rebuild wheelchairs for people without insurance who cannot aford to buy on on their own, I have been doing so for the last two years and I have never sold anything that has been donated and I never will, I am doing this because rather than sitting in my own wheelchair and having a pitty party for myself I have decided to give back to the community of DFW and as many of the surrounding cities as possible, I have never taken one red cent, most of the parts I have bought myself at thrift stores and Yard sales, I have been blessed with two good hands ans a brain, just because my legs do not work doesn't mean my world has ended, so I ask again, do you have any mobility aid taking up space in a closet, garage or attic, storage shed, outside in the yard, it doesn't matter what shape they are in I can use the parts, and this year I am starting a Non-Profit Organization, dedicated to just what I am doing now. any questions?
