CHAIR THE HOPE™ is an amazing charity that started with the Ogden family cycling 1,200 miles to raise awareness and money for wheelchairs to be delivered to global citizens in developing countries. The Ogden crew knows first hand of how a wheelchair can change a life. Nathan Ogden has broke his neck two separate times, leaving him paralyzed. His disability has not altered his adventurous drive. Nathan, his wife Heather, and their 4 children ages 10-18 completed riding a hand cycle and bicycles in relay-style from Mt. Bachelor, OR (where Nathan broke his neck the first time) to Los Angeles, CA in the summer of 2017. Since then, supporters from all over the world have joined to help us with our dream to help others.
The goal of CHAIR THE HOPE™ is to inspire others to get outside and keep moving despite disabilities, fears, or excuses, while raising $100,000 to donate to the Wheelchair Foundation. During the past 17 years, the Wheelchair Foundation has gifted over 1 million wheelchairs to people in need all over the globe which whom we are partnered with. The Ogden family is passionate about getting kids, mothers, fathers, and people of all ages off the ground and into wheelchairs that will allow them the independence to live with hope!
