About Dan Swisher 

Dan Swisher.jpg

We are fundraising for one of the Realtors that works in our office at Keller Williams Realty Partners, Dan Swisher.  Dan has been confined to a wheelchair for 24 years, after suffering an accident that paralyzed him from the chest down. This new way of life introduced a vast array of new trials as you can imagine, making even the smallest task extremely difficult. Later, complications required both of Dan’s legs to be amputated. Yet despite these daunting daily challenges, Dan remains one of the most optimistic people we know.

Dan’s shoulders have progressively deteriorated through years of overuse, no longer permitting him to maneuver his manual wheelchair without severe pain. Thankfully, the insurance company recently approved him for a power wheelchair to relieve his body of the chronic stress of manual mobility. This was a great blessing, as Dan’s capacity to work has been significantly restricted by recent medical complications. However, this also created a significant need…

 

A customized van is required to accommodate Dan’s new power wheelchair. Owning this type of van is the only way for Dan to remain mobile and independent. The average price for this type of vehicle is $85,000 and unfortunately, it is NOT covered by insurance.

 

We have secured an awesome place to have a Fundraising Cornhole Tournament rain or shine at Frey's Brewing Co. in Mt. Airy (they are donating the place, $1.00 per drink sold and a raffle basket).  We have secured an amazing food truck, Firefighting BBQ Team for great food (they are also donating their minimum sales and travel fee for the cause) and Braddock Woodworking Shop is donating a handmande coasters and cutting board. There will be several other raffle items as well. Everyone is invited to attend, even if you don’t play cornhole, come out and have a great time for a great cause!
