You Can Have an Action Trackchair, too!
The following video is to encourage folks that what worked for Hugh Seymour can also work for you. A charity auction was held on Hugh's behalf to help raise money for his new ST22 Action Trackchair. On Sunday, March 26, 2017, the good people of Culpeper and Orange counties in Virginia raised $7,300 at auction by purchasing donated items at the Rapidan Fire Hall!
At Offroad Trackchair, we are happy to bring a Trackchair to your function, if at all possible, in order to promote your fundraising efforts. Remember your friends and family respond very positively to seeing a happy, smiling you demonstrating just how much an Action Trackchair will contribute to your quality of life!
Make Hugh's Success Story Your Own Reality, Too!

heroes through granted equipment, prevention education, scholarships

military guideline, the Firehouse Subs Public Safety Foundation has
been able to award all-terrain wheelchairs to veterans injured in the
line of duty.
The following is a You Tube video that shows how the
program originated and previous donations that Firehouse Subs Public
Safety Foundation have made.
VETERANS AND FIRST RESPONDERS are welcome to apply for an
all-terrain wheelchair grant (up to $16,000) through this program. The
criteria are as follows:
• Injured in the line of duty
• Completed grant application
If someone you know can benefit from this program, please
contact our office at 540-547-4470 or 919-697-6617 for more information.

We always encourage you to contact your insurance companies and/or medicare. There has been some success with part or all of the cost being covered, depending on the state you reside in. You can get your physical therapist and/or doctor to write a letter of recommendation that you (the patient) should receive an Action Trackchair as a "quality of life" enhancement vehicle. Please note that the Action Trackchair is NOT considered a wheelchair by most insurance companies.
If you were injured at work and have a Workman's Compensation account, check with them to see if you would qualify for an Action Trackchair. Again, using a letter of recommendation from your doctor or therapist, you could get an Action Trackchair paid through Workman's Compensation. If you need a quote to send in for this, please contact our office.
If you are an individual who is looking to use an Action Trackchair for Agricultural purposes, you may qualify through a company called AgStar. They loan money at lower interest rates to qualifying individuals. Their link is here --> AGSTAR if you would like more information. If you wish to apply to AgStar, please contact our office.
Another great resource for possible funding through Agriculture is your local Agribility Chapter. Their national link is here -->Agrability. Most states have a Chapter, which would be operated through your state's college system. You can always contact us for help in finding out specifics for this option.
In cases where none of these options seem to work for your situation to receive an Action Trackchairs/Trackstander, there are other ways you can raise the funds needed, so don't give up!
Examples would be:
-Have fundraisers in your community, such as bake sales or auctions
-Get a local company to sponsor you with their goods/services for a raffle
-Utilize the web! Post a fundraiser on Facebook. You can either create a page or add an event to your current Facebook page. If you don't have Facebook, ask a friend or relative to set one up on theirs. Then send these links to your friends and family and ask them to pass along.
-The link below is another resource to help you raise money for yourself or someone you know that would like a Trackchair. GOFUNDME
Payments can be made by bank check, or wire transfer.
