Kids Mobility Network Inc. announced that they have provided more than $1 million of community benefit to children with disabilities and their families. The Denver-based non-profit organization has been providing durable medical equipment such as wheelchairs, walkers and other medical equipment to children with disabilities since 2006.
“Kids Mobility Network has been providing durable medical equipment for children across Colorado and beyond for a few years now. I am very proud of the community benefit that our organization provides. Surpassing the $1 million mark is a big milestone and we have many, many more children to serve,” Christy Kopp, executive director of Kids Mobility Network, said in a press release.
Since its inception in 2006, Kids Mobility Network has served hundreds of children with disabilities and their families, providing several hundred pieces of durable medical equipment. This equipment includes manual and power wheelchairs, walkers, gait trainers, standers and a host of other pieces of equipment that help children to better access their communities and better interact with their peers.
“The purpose of durable medical equipment is so far beyond mobility. It’s about allowing kids to be doers, not observers,” Kopp said. “This peer interaction provides enhanced development of interpersonal skills and self confidence – something that is critical to every child’s development.”
