“Clint and I share a passion for the great outdoors. We had gotten ourselves in a few tough situations trying to go into the woods in his regular chair. Even though we both have such a love for the outdoors, it became impossible to really get out there due to his MS. That first weekend signing up for the program at Red Top was the first real time we were able to be in the woods together, so it was a very special day. Needless to say, I was totally blindsided when Clint asked if we could stop at the top of a ridge in the park. He asked me to pull an item from the cooler that we had conveniently secured to the awesome platform on the All-terrain chair. Clint said that we needed some ‘ice’ to cool off, as it was a hot day! Little did I know that this ‘ice’ was a diamond ring. Clint proposed to me at that moment, and it was perfect. We were in the woods doing what we love the most, which is enjoying God’s creation. We are truly excited to see all the joy that this program has brought us and will bring to others who had previously been unable to get out into nature. We hope that everyone sees the value in what is being pioneered by The Aimee Copeland Foundation through the hard work of all involved to get All Terrain Georgia going.” – Lindsay Wilbanks
“Winning the essay contest and winning Aimee’s van has enhanced my life in so many ways. I was able to go on vacation to Florida and to Tennessee, and I am able to do volunteer work as an advocate for other disabled individuals.” – Kendra Allen
“The Aimee Copeland Foundation has been a life saver for me! At a time when I was at my lowest, Aimee was a bright light that helped to pull me through. I had recently lost my left leg below the knee making me a double amputee. I had lost my right foot only a few months earlier due to Necrotising Fascitits. I followed Aimee’s story from the beginning and she was such an inspiration to me. Getting involved with the Foundation and volunteering so that I could give back to others and get out of my own head, start becoming active again, and stop being depressed about my situation was vital to my own recovery. The people associated with ACF are some of the most compassionate people I have ever met, and the programs have been a great outlet for my creativity and energy.” -Melanie Dunn
