When a kind MEDIchair Barrie customer donated their lightly used AutoGo Folding Scooter to our store, we decided to “re-gift” it back to the Barrie community through a contest,” says John Tom, Owner, MEDIchair Barrie.


“To win the scooter, we are asking Barrie residents to submit an essay (maximum of 500 words) sharing their story about how this AutoGo Folding Scooter will make it easier for them to live with the challenges of having a disability or illness.  At the end of the contest (February 15, 2013), our Contest Committee will review submissions and choose the winning essay.”
