Wheelchair manufacturer gets extreme exposure


It's feel-good Friday!

If you're sitting at home on Sunday night, you might want to tune into Extreme Makover: Home Edition. TiLite, a manufacturer of titanium and aluminum wheelchairs, donated a $6,000 custom wheelchair to a veteran whose family will be featured on the show, the News Tribune reported today. The man is a wheelchair athlete and mentor to returning disabled Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans, according to Josh Anderson, TiLite's vice president of marketing. TiLite had four days to make the chair and ship, he told the newspaper.
