Be the Inspiration: The Gift of Mobility

Dave Talbot, Sara Murphy, Marge Mercurio  - Crutches for Africa
Do you remember David Talbot from Crutches 4 Africa? He came to our club earlier in May as our program speaker – and a powerful program it was! 

It stirred a “movement.”  Remember lugging in all those walkers, crutches, ski and trekking poles, boots and wheelchairs to meetings so they could be collected and prepared for delivery?  We also approached other Rotary Clubs in Fort Collins and they added devices and encouragement to this collection.

Well, Monday August 27th was the delivery day!!!
 
The van was packed with approximately 100 crutches, 10 walkers, 3 wheelchairs, 50 canes/trekking & ski poles, 10 boots and one leg (guess who donated that?)  At breakneck speed, an hour and a half later, those mobility devises were combined with others from many, many different collection sources. 
Everything will be loaded into a 20-foot shipping container and sent to Africa this fall. These mobility devices will ultimately change the lives of so many people.
 
Thank you for your commitment TO ONCE AGAIN make the world a better place in the name of Rotary!
