Build-a-Wheelchair® is a corporate social responsibility program born out of a desire to help American veterans and others with various mobility challenges. In this fun and worthwhile program, groups use teamwork skills and iPads® activities to earn the materials necessary to assemble, test and decorate these new wheelchairs for donation.
A fun and engaging energizer, followed by a thorough program walkthrough by the lead facilitator, will kick off this impactful event. After your teams have built their wheelchairs, they will proceed to the safety station for a mechanical inspection. Once completed, artistic notes of encouragement are designed and attached. If space allows teams will then engage in an obstacle course maneuverability challenge against other teams.
The wheelchairs will then be staged with your teams for a memorable photo shoot. When possible, a representative from the chosen charity will now make a surprise appearance, sharing information about their organization and the impact your donation will have on the recipients.
The focal point of this CSR event is to benefit the countless people who, with your generous donation, will be gifted with these beautiful, brand new wheelchairs.
To ensure a great experience, aspects of this program may be modified for your group size, group makeup, time available, and other variables.

Everyone enjoyed this event as an action-packed, competitive and FUN event. They enjoyed answering the questions to obtain the many items on the build-out list and the collaboration of our remote teams into one cohesive unit was great fun! We loved working with your lead facilitator and her staff went out of their way to make sure all details of the event went smoothly. The resulting donations of the wheelchairs to the Disabled American Veterans were the frosting on the cake.
The whole team building activity was a huge hit with our team members. There was a lot of positive interaction all the way from the warm-up segment to kick off the event as well as the building time with the teams. Paul did an exceptional job as he instilled a lot of enthusiasm, humor, and direction. The Veteran’s organization that was selected was absolutely perfect as the wheelchairs will be donated to a very deserving organization and particularly highlighting women veterans which the representative from the Veteran’s organization indicated is an area of high need. The comments made by the 3 representatives from the Veteran’s organization were very moving and consequently there was not a dry eye in our entire audience; they truly moved us emotionally and our team was completely moved by the entire activity. Every interaction with the members of your organization was stellar; very responsive and on point. Heartfelt appreciation for a truly valuable team building experience for our colleagues.
In my 12 years of managing engineers I have never had such wonderful feedback from my team for a team building exercise. The group thoroughly enjoyed the session, all felt that our ability to give back to the local community created a session that not only created an amazing team environment but allow them to focus on something other than themselves.
