In past newsletters we have introduced you to our participant, Barb Zablotney, that won the 2018 Ms. Wheelchair Pennsylvania title back in March.
This past July, Barb traveled to Grand Rapids, Michigan to compete in the Ms. Wheelchair America competition, competing against 25 other women in wheelchairs from all over the country.
Barb went home with 2019’s People’s Choice Award, in which her friends and community voted by raising funds leading up to the event. These funds went toward to the winning states program and to the Ms. Wheelchair America’s personal care attendant funds. She also set the record for the most money raised with the award.
Congratulations Barb, we are so proud of you! Your story and determination continue to inspire everyone around you!
