King, NC (PRWEB) June 16, 2014

This past week, volunteers from 101 Mobility attended MDA summer camp’s costume parade. 101 Mobility is a national franchisor, retailer, and installer of mobility equipment headquartered in Wilmington, NC. The costume designs were a result of the creativity of 101 Mobility’s technical and design department. Each costume can be applied to a wheelchair and showcases the camp session’s Sci-Fi and Fantasy theme. Gargoyles, dragons, fairies, and butterflies dazzled and paraded around the Camp Hanes’ gymnasium.

101 Mobility representatives Lauren Davenport and Tammy Harrell were in attendance to help with costume decoration and take part in the celebration. “The campers could hardly wait for the parade to start,” said Lauren. “The creative project was a great way to get the children involved artistically and stretch their already broad imaginations.”

The costume parade was modeled after a very fun and successful annual Halloween wheelchair costume parade 101 Mobility sponsors every year at Coddington Elementary School. The technical, design, and entire staff at 101 Mobility is excited for future costume parades and looks forward to continuing their strong partnership with Coastal Carolinas MDA.
