The company partnered with The Independence Fund through its Mobility program to help veterans get back outside to enjoy the outdoors through a variety of devices, including all-terrain wheelchairs and adaptive bicycles. The company also teamed with customers for the goal of donating the trackchair to a wounded U.S. military veteran.

The Independence Fund delivered the Action Trackchair to Collins in advance of AGG1 in Houston. At a Telsmith event, the company showed a video of Collins enjoying his farm and fishing pond that he’s been unable to access since his injuries.

During that same VIP event, Telsmith hosted 2017 recipient Juan Reyes, a retired Air Force master sergeant, who shared his experience working with the fund and how his Action Trackchair effected his life.
