Build-a-Wheelchair is a fun and worthwhile charity team building event. Your group will be formed into teams that complete tasks to get the parts and materials necessary to assemble, test, and decorate wheelchairs for donation. With help from our SmartHunts® App and a ton of iPads®, we have created the most fun, high-energy, high-tech Build-a-Wheelchair program in the world!
This Corporate Social Responsibility team building event will help disabled Americans with serious mobility issues. Our Build-a-Wheelchair program will touch your team’s hearts and make it an inspiring day that all will remember.
After a fun icebreaker to get everyone in gear, your group will be formed into teams. Each team will receive a set of puzzles, trivia, and challenges to solve that can be customized for your organization. Correct answers will be rewarded with a trip to our “Build-a-Wheelchair store” to obtain the parts required to build wheelchairs.
Tools such as organization, delegation, collaboration – and some light mechanical skills – will be required for this challenge. After your teams have built their wheelchairs, they will proceed to the safety inspection station for certification.
Now the excitement mounts as teams take turns attempting to maneuver through our exhilarating obstacle course! This timed competitive event will help your group understand the difficulties faced by their fellow wheelchair-bound Americans.
At the end of this fun, heartwarming charity team building event, a representative from a charity that deals with people in need of wheelchairs will make a surprise visit to receive the donation and to thank the participants for their generosity.
To ensure a great experience, aspects of these team building activities may be modified for your group size, group makeup, time available, and other variables.

"Exciting, fun and engaging. One of the best team building events we’ve ever done. It really got everyone involved right from the start. What a great way to give back to those who gave so much for us and our country. It’s one that we won’t soon forget! I also want to say that your lead facilitator was a master at getting the group involved and engaged from the minute he said hello!"Cindy - MotivAction, LLC
"Our lead facilitator hit it out of the park and did such an amazing job with our team building event. It totally exceeded our expectations and was so much fun. I’ve never seen our guys hoot, holler and laugh as much as they did during the competition! Thank you so much for your help in making our event such a success. You’ll be hearing from us again!"Daniela - National Church Residences
"Thanks so much for the fantastic team building event you delivered at the 2014 ADMEI Conference in Washington, DC. Your program, Build a Wheelchair received a 4.7 out of 5.0! Comments included “This was great!” and “The lead facilitator did a great job of warming us up with some fun icebreakers” and “The team-building event was a great experience for a good cause."Fran - Association of Destination Management Executives International
"The program started with some light, fun warm-up activities that easily broke down barriers and got everyone in a team-minded, competitive spirit. The actual building of the wheelchairs was a fun and fulfilling activity but the icing on the cake was the reaction from the local Washington, DC charitable organizations that were receiving the fully assembled chairs - truly touching and rewarding. Thanks for a great program!"Grant - ADMEI
"Thank you so much for the opportunity to give back, it meant a lot to us all at the ADMEI Conference and we had so much fun doing it as well!"Denise - BBC Destination Management
"The Build-a-Wheelchair program was engaging and fun. I would definitely recommend it for groups that are competitive in nature and have the desire to meet and interact with their peers. It was not only fun and challenging but it also had a higher purpose...to give others a better life. It really makes a great impression."Marilyn - DESTINation Management, LLC
"Your staff was amazing and very energetic. My team had a wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed the tasks they were assigned in order to create the wheelchair and especially the course they had to run at the end. Being able to look at the videos and pictures that my teams took while doing the assignments was a blast and very helpful in keeping memories to share afterwards. They really liked that some members from the organization in which we donated the wheelchairs to were able to come and talk to us to let us know a little more of where the wheel chairs were going to."Angie - Genentech, USA
