Jack Drury

International Wheelchair Foundation


The Rotary Club of Fort Lauderdale is proud of its association with the Wheelchair Foundation and its SE Regional President Jack Drury.  Jack has made it possible for the Club to present to every speaker each week the gift of a wheelchair that is donated in the speaker’s name to a disabled individual somewhere in the world. Wheelchair Foundation is a nonprofit organization leading an international effort to create awareness of the needs and abilities of people with physical disabilities, to promote the joy of giving, create global friendship, and to deliver a wheelchair to every child, teen and adult in the world who needs one, but cannot afford one. For these people, the Wheelchair Foundation delivers Hope, Mobility and Independence.  Kenneth E. Behring established the Wheelchair Foundation in 2000.  In March of 2001 Rotary Clubs and Rotarians joined the mission and since then over 870,000 wheelchairs have been delivered or committed.  The Wheelchair Foundation is a division of the Global Health and Education Foundation.
