To families with special needs kids, traveling may seem like an impossibility. The Grace Project raises funds to help these families take trips that are specially designed to benefit each member of the family and the unit as a whole.
Look for The Grace Project this Saturday April, 18th at the Barrett-Jackson car auction in Palm Beach, Florida. SJO Foundation for Hope and Torque Sports have partnered up to auction off an awesome 1969 Z/28 Camaro! Proceeds from the auction go to benefit The Grace Project, Connor's Cure and A HERO Foundation. Connor's Cure is a non-profit organization dedicated to furthering Pediatric Cancer research. A HERO Foundation was founded to serve America's wounded veterans by providing fellowship and mentoring opportunities through recreational activities. We are honored to be with such a prestigious group for the event.
This Z/28 comes from Torque Sports & Performance founder Scott James' personal collection. He has spent the past 10 years resotring and modifying this Camaro to make it truely unique. It boasts a 350 small block, brand new interior, coil-over suspension, MagnaFlow Performance exhaust system, new CPP Big Brake kit, and much more. This baby ain't just for show! Learn more about the car here: Z/28 Camaro From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you, Scott!
Our volunteers have spent months finding a suitable beach to house one of our wheelchairs. We are proud to announce that we have partnered with the City of Laguna Beach to provide one of our beach wheelchairs at Main Beach!
Main Beach is one of the best locations for family fun in Southern California. You can walk on the beach to access retail shops and restaurants, and it is a stone's throw from DisneyLand! With the addition of our VSteel De Bug beach wheelchair, this is now a fun environment to be enjoyed by EVERYONE. Families with mobility limitations are no longer confined to the boardwalk, they can enjoy all the fun Main Beach has to offer. These chairs are made in the USA with the highest quality materials to ensure safety and fun. They can even go in up to 10" of water to get your toes wet!
What makes Main Beach so special to us is the accessibility. Not only is it in a safe and fun location, but, there is plenty of accessible parking next to a maintained beach ramp. With The Grace Project's De Bug wheelchair, families can get from their vehicles to the beach on a flat and maintained surface.
Hopefully, Main Beach will be the first of many locations in Southern California The Grace Project can call home. We already have some beach wheelchairs in Northern California to serve families. In the picture below we can see Gracie and her mother enjoying a walk on the beach in a VSteel De Bug beach wheelchair. Now families visiting Main Beach can do the same!
