Big Chair Jam-bo

The day has finally arrived for our CAFrica team to board our flight from LAX and on to Tanzania!  We have collected 14 race wheelchairs as donations from challenged athletes throughout the country and have now checked them on our flight.  Thank you KLM for not charging us extra baggage fees for our entire entourage.  We will meet the rest of our team of 20 in Amsterdam and continue on to Kilimanjaro International Airport.  It is fitting that our big adventure commences on this day considering it is the opening day of the Paralympics in London. 

If you haven't seen it already, there was a great article in Saturday's Orange County Register about Beth Sanden and our CAFrica team delivering these chairs to Africa.
