About David’s Chair

David’s Chair got its start in 2017, after Medford man David Hartrick was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). An avid hunter and fisherman, David immediately began searching for a way to enjoy the outdoors in the confines of a wheelchair. With the help of CEO and Founder Steve Furst, the pair discovered Action Trackchairs and raised enough money to buy one. David recognized he wouldn’t be able to use it for long and dreamed of others benefiting from the chair as well; shortly after, the non-profit David’s Chair was born. 

David passed away on January 11, 2018, just 11 months after his ALS diagnosis. However, David’s Chair continues to give the gift of independence and freedom to people with ALS and other mobility challenges. Both David’s original Action Trackchair, several newer chairs have been used by people with mobility challenges to go places and experience freedom they haven’t been able to, free of charge. In addition to providing track chairs, David’s Chair debuted their adaptive golf program in June of 2021 and now owns two ParaGolfers. This special golf chair allows individuals with many different mobility challenges to standup and take a full golf swing.

With the help of donations in the form of grants, sponsors and generous individuals, David’s Chair has taken people and their families on exciting outdoor excursions at locations that are inaccessible to regular wheelchairs.
