Freedom Alliance, an organization supporting our nation’s injured service members, is set to donate a customized, all-terrain wheelchair to an Army veteran. The Action TrackChair will be given to Las Vegas resident Spc. Blaine Sullivan at the Santa Fe Station Hotel & Casino on Saturday, Aug. 5 at 6 p.m.  This is the thirteenth chair Freedom Alliance has donated to a deserving veteran this year. This event is open to the public.


Sullivan served in the Army for two years before his career ended abruptly after losing his leg to an improvised explosive device (IED) blast in Afghanistan. He was awarded a Purple Heart award for his injury.

He currently receives ongoing treatment at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Maryland.


Sullivan is looking forward to the new chair as it will help ease the transition into civilian life and back to his favorite hobbies including hunting, fishing and off-road racing. The functionality of the chair will allow Sullivan the mobility desired when spending time with his family which includes his wife, Kristyn and their two young children.
