BraunAbility® MXV® – Alive Ride 2015
On Sept. 1, 2006, Lance Corporal Mike Delancey was paralyzed by a sniper’s bullet in Haditha, Iraq. Mike flatlined two times that day, but he trumped predictions and survived. Nine years later, the Marine is kickstarting a Wounded Warriors Abilities Ranch to offer peace and recreation for veterans fighting their own mental and physical battles. Fellow veterans and supporters across the country joined to celebrate the groundbreaking and to congratulate Mike as he became the first customer to own a BraunAbility MXV — all on the day he calls his Alive Day.
