A Kennewick company, TiLite, is making an appearance on the national TV show “Extreme Makeover, Home Edition” this Sunday, by way of donating a specialized wheelchair to a wounded Veteran who is the recipient of the makeover.
TiLite is a firm that builds titanium and aluminum wheelchairs and when contacted by the ABC producers, they were happy to build the custom chair for the Veteran, who is also a wheelchair athlete and mentor to disabled Iraqi and Afghanistan Veterans.
TiLite is an important manufacturer here in the Tri-Cities and their generosity will certainly give them some extra recognition in the U.S. and abroad from this national exposure.
We are so proud to have these types of individuals and their company as representatives of the Tri-Cities. They show all that’s good about the Tri-Cities, Washington.
