2016 Gala Weekend Photos

Platform of Advocacy:  

No matter your disability, be a beautiful dreamer. Set goals and see to it that they get done on your timetable. See yourself as 'different', 'capable', 'bilingual' instead of words that curse us during our time on earth.

​The Ms. Wheelchair Virginia mission is to educate, advocate and raise awareness of the abilities and needs of the people with disabilities, in order to influence attitudinal, architectural, and social change for all Virginians. The MWVA program is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that focuses on the accomplishments of Virginians with disabilities. The program is led by a Board of Directors and operates through the hard work and dedication of its volunteers. Our Vision is to inspire and motivate Virginians as role models of courage and hope. For more information, visit the ABOUT US page.
