Hey guys, I am reaching out to my paintball family to bolster some support here. My father is a quadriplegic, hit by a drunk driver over 23 years ago. For about the last 20 years he has been volunteering as a guest speaker at schools to teach kids about the dangers of drunk driving and to educate them about spinal cord injuries.
Right now, there is a contest with Mobility Works, where people can vote once a day for a candidate, and the 3 winners will get a new wheelchair van. MY DAD NEEDS THIS SO BAD.
Here is where the paintball related part comes in, since I have already got a lot of support from the paintball community, and I am a well known player and previous employee of Paintball Explosion in East Dundee, IL - I have gotten my dad to agree to donate the old van, should we win, to Paintball Explosion to be used as a wheelchair accessible assault van! This way, other disabled people will be able to enjoy paintball just like the rest of us, all in the comfort of an accessible assault van!
So basically, its a win-win. I will post the link below. It takes about 20 seconds to vote and you can do it once daily. I am asking, no, PLEADING, with you to vote daily and share this on your facebook walls, and in any forums you may be a part of. I gotta give a big thanks to Behind The Bunker, Valken, Paintball Explosion, Bud Orr, and Tina Ruzzo for already supporting me on this.
PLEASE HELP MY FAMILY AND VOTE DAILY! This is for a good cause!

Thanks guys!! This means the world to me!
