Celebrate Luis' Birthday With Walkabout
September is a very special month for all of us at Walkabout – it marks Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Month and our co-founder Luis’ birthday! He is the very first #WalkaboutHero and a huge inspiration to us all.
Luis was Spinal Cord Injured at the age 18. He was a high-school graduate, with his whole life ahead of him… but he didn’t let his injury stop him from making a positive impact in the world. Since launching Walkabout in 2009, Luis and his sister Carolina have changed the lives of over 60,700 people around the world!
As many of you know, the Dominican Republic is a very special place for the Gonzalez-Bunster family, a second home. Children with mobility disabilities in the Dominican Republic are in huge need as the country lacks supply of specialized pediatric wheelchairs. This October, the Walkabout Team aims to return to the Dominican to provide 200 life-changing wheelchairs to children in need.
In honor of Luis and his mission to improve the lives of people with mobility disabilities around the world, we are asking you to celebrate his birthday with us by making a donation!
100% of your donation will go towards giving the gift of mobility to children in need in the Dominican Republic.
