In 2004, Glen Mather was asked to go on a wheelchair distribution trip with the Wheelchair Foundation to Mexico City. When he arrived, he was deeply moved by the response and joy of the recipients, and decided that he wanted to find a larger way to help. Through his company, employees, business associates and friends and family, he planned golf tournaments, dinners, author lectures, and special events like the Hero Games to raise funds. With the kindness and generosity of others, the tribe of people wanting to help grew; so much so that he created his own charity: Chair the Love.
Chair the Love is a licensed non-profit organization (501c3) focused on providing equipment and services to people with mobility issues assisting them with regaining their independence. We have provided over 4,000 wheelchairs to those in need worldwide, built wheelchair ramps for people, and provided local schools with mobility devices for their clinics. We have worked with other disability-focused organizations in order to improve the life of those with mobility issues locally
How We Continue To Make A Difference
We continue to expand across the nation and worldwide with the support of organizations like Rotary Club, and are excited to grow our network of like-minded organizations and individuals as we all work to alleviate the devastating need for mobility worldwide! We also are proud of our partnership with the Wheelchair Foundation, where we have access to matching funds and efficient means of ordering wheelchairs.

From the time that Frank Sinatra first crooned…
“Come fly with me, let’s float down to Peru”
In llama-land there’s a one-man band
And he’ll toot his flute for you”
…it has captured the imagination of those who love to travel and explore. Some never imagined they’d find themselves in llama-land, sharing an experience that they’d never forget with great friends
