Nonprofit highlights Batmobile wheelchair giveaway at Comic-Con

California

SAN DIEGO, California – A nonprofit is helping to make the life of a child that much brighter through an awesome new wheelchair.

The nonprofit group Magic Wheelchair and Fresno’s own Monster City Studios gave a boy named Jaiden his very own Batmobile wheelchair at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con.

The nonprofit is known to build “epic” costumes for kids in wheelchairs.

Build Lead, Jeff Watamura, says the wheelchairs on display at the event are foam-based, hard-coated and then painted.

There is a long, growing list of those who want a customized chair, says Britta, the manager of creative development.

There is no cost to the family who receives the donation.

When a family is selected, they meet with a builder and discuss what would mean the most to the child in regards to the design.
