Dodge gives back to local hero in Canada

As was evidenced in the custom Durango that their engineers designed to aid first responders, the brass at Dodge are no strangers to lending a helping hand to those in need. And now that they've lent a much-deserved helping hand to one young man who's been working to make a difference, the pride just continues to grow here at Mike Brown Chrysler Dodge Jeep.

In April of 2010, Jeff Scott was left a quadriplegic after fracturing his vertebrae in a snowboarding accident. After a year of surgeries, treatments and physical therapy sessions, Scott not only regained partial use of his arms and wrists, but he started the Live It Love It Foundation (LILI) to provide adaptive outdoor adventure sessions to people with disabilities across Canada.

Before long, he was being honored as a "Local Hero" of 2013 by the National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association (NMEDA). Not only that, but he was recently given a specially-modified 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan to help him continue his work.

"It is hard to put into words just how liberating a new reliable vehicle will be," says Scott. "I look forward to all the opportunities this van will help create in allowing me to connect with more individuals, helping me spread an attitude of gratitude. Thank you all for the incredibly steadfast support and encouragement."1

As for why Dodge would do something like this for Mr. Scott, it's just the kind of automaker they are.

So if you'd like to learn more about how Dodge is working to give back, we'd be happy to fill you in at our dealership here in Granbury, TX. Take it from us: there's a lot to be proud of.
