Ryan and Lana Weimer, the founders of Magic Wheelchair, have five children, three of whom were born with Spinal Muscular Atrophy, which requires the use of wheelchairs for the entirety of their lives.
Each Halloween, Ryan made the biggest, “baddest” costumes he could for his children Keaton, Addi and Bryce, for many years. This has been an amazing experience for the Weimer family, one that they wanted to share with other families. In 2015, Ryan and Lana decided to make that happen and started the non-profit organization that seeks to put a smile on the face of every child in a wheelchair.
Our vision is to put a smile on the face of every child in a wheelchair by transforming their wheelchairs into awesomeness created by our hands and their imaginations. Our mission is to give kids in wheelchairs an unforgettable experience by creating custom costumes for them at no expense to their families.
