Veteran’s Day Program Provides Free Folding Canes for Mobility Assistance
A national program to honor US military veterans for their selfless contributions will provide 36,000 Hugo® Folding Canes free of charge this Veteran’s Day, beginning November 10th and running through November 12th at all Sam’s Club locations across the country.
According to the US Department of Veterans Affairs, 3.16 million veterans received disability compensation as of June 30, 2010. Over 289,000 veterans are rated as being 100% disabled. Many of these struggle with lifelong mobility issues due to injuries they have suffered.
Hugo Salutes Our Veterans is a program launched in 2007 by AMG Medical Inc, headquartered in Alpharetta, Georgia. The mission of the company is to help disabled US military veterans stay active, doing the things they love to do. Last year, the program gave out 25,000 canes, which normally retail for $29.99.
The Hugo Folding Cane has an ergonomic comfort-grip handle, appropriate for both left- and right-handed users. It has multiple height settings to comfortably meet the needs of most people. The cane can be folded for storage, but locks into position when in use – supporting up to 550 pounds - and includes an additional handle strap for safety.
Limited quantities of the Hugo Folding Cane are available while supplies last. Proof of military service may be required to be eligible. To find a Sam’s Club location near you, please visit www.samsclub.com. For more veteran resources, visit www.hugosalutes.com
