To celebrate Pennzoil’s love of cars, freedom and veterans, Pennzoil has teamed up with Paralyzed Veterans of America for the second year to support Mission: ABLE by generously retrofitting three vehicles for three disabled veterans.
This year each of Paralyzed Veterans of America’s 34 chapters will be eligible to nominate one (1) Paralyzed Veterans of America member. Nominees must 18 years or older, honorably discharged, disabled veteran of a United States military branch and need adaptation to their vehicle in order to drive
Six finalists will be selected by a panel of judges based on entry submissions. Our members and their families have wonderful stories to share, so please feel free to include relevant stories at registration. The six finalists will be posted online for fan voting where the six will be narrowed to the final three winners.
Winners will be invited to participate in the donation ceremony presented by Pennzoil and Paralyzed Veterans of America the week of November 3, 2013. The ceremony location is still being finalized. All expenses will be paid by Paralyzed Veterans of America.
Paralyzed Veterans of America is so excited to present this opportunity to each of our chapters and their members. Pennzoil has been a wonderful partner and champion for our organization and we’re honored that they want to continue this campaign to help veterans regain their sense of freedom.
