May is the first ever National Mobility Awareness month, sponsored by National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association (NMEDA). To celebrate, you have a chance to win amazing prizes, including Free Vans and Cash! United Access is having a contest to help celebrate this month with a grand prize of $500 cash OR $1000 off the purchase of mobility equipment from United Access! In addition to the grand prize, there will be (4) $25 gift cards awarded. The contest to Win Free Vans is sponsored by NMEDA. In cooperation with several manufacturers, there will be at least 3 custom wheelchair accessible vehicles given away to “Local Heroes”. In order to win one of these vehicles, entrants must submit a short video (1-3 minutes) or 400 word essay sharing their story about overcoming the challenges of living with a disability, or caring for someone living with a disability. Stories can be submitted starting on March 18, 2012 and run through May 13, 2012. Accepted submissions will be voted on starting April 1. The winners will be selected and the vans given away on national television at the end of May. If you use dealer code 989 when entering the contest, or when voting for your favorite submission, you (or the person you are voting for) will receive 5 extra points!
