Best Day Foundation is a volunteer organization which aids children with special needs build confidence and self-esteem through safe, fun, adventure activities. Best Day currently has chapters serving Florida, New Jersey and California. Recently, SNG supported the organization’s event at Pompano Beach’s Public Beach and Pier on Saturday and Sunday, September 23-24.
Special Needs Group provided “Joy on the Beach” wheelchairs for the children to use on the beach’s sand as well as in the ocean throughout the two-day event.
The Joy on the Beach (J.O.B.) Wheelchair features innovative, air filled balloon wheels that make it easy to roll the beach’s sand or even snow; the beach wheelchair can also be lowered into a pool or rolled into the ocean’s open water for leisure as the inflatable wheels provide flotation. The J.O.B., made of aluminum alloy which will not corrode, is light and sturdy. The chair disassembles, in order to be put into the convenient, easy to carry duffle bag with wheels for transporting and storing.
The J.O.B., which features a canvas material that attaches to the frame with a nautical cord, also has accessories available. Accessories include a Body Support, Horseshoe-Shaped Inflatable Collar, Safety Belt and Sun Canopy. The Body Support assists the individual who has trouble controlling his/her bodies while the Collar serves as a flotation device. The newest accessory available for the J.O.B. is the 3rd Wheel. The 3rd Wheel Kit makes pushing the chair easier and also attaches to the duffle bag to provide efficient transporting of the unit.
The J.O.B. allows those with special needs to not miss out on leisure activities on the beach, in the water and even through snow. The beach wheelchair is available for rental to passengers on cruise ships or those with land-only vacations in specific locations. The Joy on the Beach has available accessories as well which can be purchased directly through Special Needs Group. For more information, please visit www.specialneedsgroup.com or call 800.513.4515.
