The organization’s co-founders became best friends after both were paralyzed in car accidents.

A local nonprofit is helping people with disabilities who may not otherwise have the means to get the services they need.

Wheeling Forward was founded by Alex Elegudin and Yannick Benjamin back in 2011. The two met by chance in 2003 after both were paralyzed in car accidents. They became best friends, helping each other through the toughest of days, and now they pay it forward.
