Magic Wheelchair was established in 2015, and aims to serve families with disabilities by bringing their visions of unique costumes to life.
Based in Fairview, Oregon, the company helps make costumes for kids in wheelchairs all around the country.
They build epic wheelchair costumes for FREE for those in need.
To be eligible for a Magic Wheelchair costume, a kiddo must be between the ages of 5 and 17 and primarily use a wheelchair for mobility. The project build timeline averages 8 weeks.
Ryan and Lana Weimer, the founders of Magic Wheelchair, have five children, three of whom were born with Spinal Muscular Atrophy, which requires the use of wheelchairs for the entirety of their lives. Each Halloween, Ryan made the biggest, “baddest” costumes he could for his sons, Keaton and Bryce.
Once news of these costumes spread, Ryan began receiving requests from parents around the world asking if he would transform their kids’ wheelchairs into “magic”. In 2015, Ryan and Lana decided to make that happen and started Magic Wheelchair, the non-profit organization that seeks to put a smile on the face of every child in a wheelchair.
