Rotarians from Springdale, Arkansas and District 6110 traveled to Cancun, Mexico to deliver wheelchairs at the Teleton Children’s Rehabilitation Center (CRIT), and conducted home visits to deliver wheelchairs to 35 recipients in and around the Cancun area.

Knights of Columbus and parishioners from Plano, Texas and Springdale, Arkansas hand delivered 280 wheelchairs, to kids at the Teleton Children’s Rehabilitation Center (CRIT) in Guanajuato, Mexico. All of the kids and their families received the visitors with open arms. Children wrote heartfelt letters of thanks and couldn’t wait to give hugs and kisses. The next day the Knights delivered wheelchairs to children’s homes who couldn’t make it to the CRIT center the day of the day before. Thank you to the Knights and parishioners from Plano and Springdale for helping us answer prayers and make dreams come true.
