I never thought we’d be donating 30 power wheelchairs a year, teaching 10,000 students annually and participating in various events around the country helping so many people in need. This is a celebration of where we started and how far we’ve come,” said President of the Darrell Gwynn Foundation, Darrell Gwynn.
