Green Arrow fan gets the ultimate surprise at Rose City Comic Con

Oregon resident Cassie Hudson is an avid Green Arrow fan, and she got a massive surprise when she attended this year’s Rose City Comic Con.

Magic Wheelchair, a non-profit organization from Portland, Oregon, presented Hudson with a specially customized wheelchair, which has been adapted to look like the Green Arrow’s motorbike.

I was completely mind blown. I’m so excited and so happy,” said Hudson.

FOX Oregon stated that;

The non-profit is continuing the work of the Weimer family that made incredible costumes for their children in wheelchairs.

People from other parts of the country are helping to expand their efforts and make more kids’ dreams come true.

Last year the group was able to make 8-epic costumes for kids. The Green Arrow one is their latest awesome piece of work. 

Hudson said she loves the Green Arrow and how he helps out anyone in need.

From the Magicwheelchair site:

Ryan and Lana Weimer, the founders of Magic Wheelchair, have five children, three of whom were born with Spinal Muscular Atrophy, which requires the use of wheelchairs for the entirety of their lives.

Each Halloween, Ryan made the biggest, “baddest” costumes he could for his sons, Keaton and Bryce, for many years. Once news of these costumes spread, Ryan began receiving requests from parents around the world asking if he would transform their kids’ wheelchairs into “magic”…and then, in 2015, Ryan and Lana decided to make that happen and started the non-profit organization that seeks to put a smile on the face of every child in a wheelchair.
