Gearing up for this year’s rally on Saturday September 10, 2016, Vita has announced to continue fundraising efforts for our Training Kitchen.
Every good Rally needs good food! The Rally for Vita has been successful in purchasing the MV-1, the world’s first purpose built vehicle for wheelchair users. Many of our members have experienced the opportunity to ride up front, for the first time in their lives.
Our members express their desire to be ‘in the driver’s seat’ regarding their own lives. Members have told us that they want to continue to be in the driver’s seat, and that they want Vita to build them a ‘training kitchen’ where they can learn to cook everything from hot dogs to whole meals.
This Rally for Vita we will continue to funds so that we can further furnish our new training center with all the equipment that is needed to teach practical skills that can lead to independent living or greater independence in everyday life. They say, “You haven’t experienced life until you’ve grilled your own steak and ridden the open road on your motorcycle.” Well, the Rally for Vita will give our members another chance to experience life.
For every 5 members who come to learn in this kitchen Vita‘s goal is to help them find gainful employment in the hospitality sector.
