Mobility Rodeo

Dieker from Ulysses wins Firefly from Mobility Rodeo

Bill Hayse (LEFT) demonstrates how to attach the Firefly, a battery powered hand cycle attachment, to Trish Dieker's manual wheelchair. Trish and Tim Dieker, Ulysses, came by Kansas Truck Mobility to pick up their prize from the Mobility Rodeo which was a gift from Tim's mother, Donna Schaffer, whose name was drawn. The Firefly was the grand prize awarded from the Mobility Rodeo 2014.

"We can go for a bike ride," Trish told her husband, Tim, "and you won't need to push me anymore on walks." Trish said she stays active by exercising on the track at the Ulysses High School, cooking, cleaning, caring for others, and shopping! Going out for lunch she said is a treat, and assures her husband that eating out is much cheaper than therapy! She recommends Alejandro's in Ulysses.


Gayle Thomas, Wichita, won the 42-inch HDTV, donated by VMI, Phoenix.
