Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) July 03, 2012
The Disabled Veterans National Foundation (http://www.dvnf.org), a national non-profit veterans service organization that focuses on helping men and women who serve and return home wounded or sick after defending our safety and our freedom, announces an innovative partnership with one of the world’s top manufacturers of crutches. The partnership will grant crutches to Veterans Service Organizations and Individual Veterans. Veterans and VSO’s can apply for the crutches directly through the DVNF web site.
“We are very excited about our partnership with DVNF. Our In-Motion Pro crutches are the best products for anybody needing crutch assistance, especially Veterans. I am personally very pleased to now have better avenues to serve those Veterans who fought and served our country.” Ken Lester CEO of Millennial Medical
Millennial Medical (http://www.millennialmedical.com) is located in Northern Utah and has redesigned the look and purpose of traditional crutches based on 34 medical studies that show the harmful effects of traditional crutches on the body. In 2006, Millennial Medical entered the market with its crutch and was awarded the National Merit Award for the product that most improves the quality of life.
‘We are pleased to announce this partnership with Millennial Medical,” said Precilla Wilkewitz, President of DVNF. “Too many of our veterans are returning from duty in Iraq and Afghanistan with physical injuries. Millennial Medical prides itself on making the world’s best crutches and now our proud veterans can apply to DVNF to receive a pair.”
Since 2007, DVNF has helped more than 80,000 veterans through the support of nearly 1.8 million donors. Through the Honor a Vet partnership, DVNF will grant the crutches to veterans and Millennial will distribute them accordingly. Both organizations will support and promote the multi-channel quarterly campaign. Any extra crutches will be donated to VA Medical Centers for further distribution opportunities.
