Fundraising Efforts For Off-Road Track Chair Give 5-Year-Old Outdoor Freedom

Every youngster should have the ability to explore the outdoors. Generous donations toward an off-road track chair gave this 5-year-old Oregon boy a new lease on life.

Logan Roninger has a new set of wheels, and it’s all possible because of the generous folk that reside in Klamath County, Oregon.

Living with a condition known as spinal muscular atrophy, Logan depends on a chair to get around. But to really explore the tough terrain found beyond his backyard, a special set of wheels is needed. Enter the multi-featured off-road track chair.

Generous donations, through such avenues as high-school basketball ‘miracle minutes’ and one teacher’s 25 year fast food toy collection which went up for sale online, provided the much-needed funds to purchase the $13,000 chair.

It took nine days for Logan to learn all the ropes for using the specialized chair, but now he is a pro – often spending two to four hours a day on it. Having two parents that are biologists, the ability to spend more time in the great outdoors with them is definitely a blessing.

“You have no idea the difference you’ve made in our lives, and we can’t say thank you enough,” said Trisha Roninger. “Thank you,” added Logan.

Happy trails, Logan, and a heartfelt thanks to your many friends in Klamath County.
