|Go-Go Scooters Invade Halas Hall|
Lake Forest, IL.— “Swoosh” is the sweetest sound to the Chicago Bears defensive back corp. The Chicago Bears have received an unusual donation and things have turned upside down at Halas Hall.
A local Chicago company, Mobilators Inc. recently donated 25 Go-Go Elite Traveler 3-Wheel Travell Scooters to the troubled Chicago Bears. Halas Hall is enveloped in whizzing sounds of the scooters along with joyful laughter despite an upsetting season.
Chicago Bears team doctors and physicians have not cleared many of the Chicago Bears players to run, but saw no danger in the scooters.
That was until Zachary Bowman was inadvertently side swiped by fellow cornerback Nathan Vasher. Zachary Bowman was not injured any further in the incident.
The wide receivers have also been seen “riding routes” in scooters with Kyle Orton taking all snaps with the first team even while on his scooter. Since the arrival of the scooters, Kyle Orton and the offense really looks like they're on the same page this week.
"It’s been a long week of practice and the scooters couldn't have arrived at Halas Hall at a better time. In fact, I have to admitt, I got a little roll time on a scooter when Dusty Dvorcek wasn't using his," said an elated Lovie Smith.
Mike Kroch, CEO and Founder of The Mobilator Store, said: “We are grateful to give the Chicago Bears mobility when they’re hurt. Most of us take for granted the simple pleasures like going out to play football that come with mobility and independence.” Mike started the Gift of Mobilitator program in December 2000 to help debilitated pro sports teams improve their quality of life by recovering their independence and mobility. Since then, the outreach program has worked with organizations around the country to donate power wheelchairs, scooters and manual wheelchairs valued at more than $200,000 a year to individuals and community service organizations, enabling them to provide freedom and independence to people with limited mobility.
Chicago Bears players have vowed to return the favor and “pay it forward” to the local Chicago community and have since scheduled and created several new fundraising events for local chairities. These chairity events include: scooter bowling, scooter races, demolition derbies and, of course, football.
Brian Urlacher was quite moved by this news and said, “I can’t wait to really wack some of these kids in a nice demolition derby. Besides, some of them have attitudes, right? Nothing wrong with a little attitude adjustment?”
