“The point of Chair Aware is not to belittle or lessen the personal and intimate challenges faced by individuals who live with mobility issues; The point is to allow able-bodied people to experience a limitation that is a daily part of life for us, and to take this experience forward with them when considering accessibility and inclusion issues in their future.”

-  Jason “Jigger” Lunn, founder of the Team Jigger Foundation

“I had three main realizations from my day in a chair. First, using a manual wheelchair is physically exhausting. Second, people are genuinly helpful. And third, I have a much better undertsanding of the challenges faced by those having to use a wheelchair. Chair Aware 2021 was an awesome event!”
