👻AHHHH — BEST part of the month! Cause it’s GIVEAWAY time! #celebratewithmadsen (Enter HERE!)

As part of our DISABILITY AWARENESS CELEBRATION, we have partnered up with some of our favorite people + companies, who all are doing incredible things to promote inclusion and spread awareness for the amazing special needs community. 💪

WINNER!!! Krieger family from Mesa, Arizona. Nominated by Fritz's aunt, Becca Dehoyos.

Disability Awareness Giveaway Winner - the Kreiger Family - Duschenne Muscular Dystrophy

"The Krieger family has 4 children. Their 3rd son, Fritz was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy at 10 months old. He is currently 3. Duchenne causes the muscles to deteriorate over time. Boys with Duchenne loose the ability to walk by their teenage years and do not live through the 20s. Currently there is no cure. The Krieger family has taught their community that strength does not come from strong muscles. Strength is so much more. Strength is fighting every day to bring awareness to this terminal disease. Strength is giving Fritz the best life despite his inabilities. Strength is their community walking along side the Kriegers. The Krieger family would enjoy the bike because they have said from the beginning, they refused to let this disease control their life. Their desire is to allow Fritz to be a typical 3 old year with modifications. Fritz’s muscles to do not allow him to pedal on a bike but with this modification, he can still experience the same joy his brothers do when they cruise down the road. Strength is family bike rides!"

Custom MADSEN Chariot FLIES in the St. George Marathon

Custom MADSEN Chariot FLIES in the St. George Marathon


On Saturday October 5, 2019, Danny and Brian put the Jared's Custom MADSEN Chariot to work for the 26.2 miles — and cruised to an astonishing finishing time of 1:52 — winning 1st place in the Adaptive division...and setting a course record. The chariot is one-of-a-kind, and built for speed and stability. It performed beautifully 😍. This was a weekend to celebrate Brian, and to help create awareness around Multiple Sclerosis — a chronic, progressive disease that affects the central nervous system by disrupting the flow of information within the brain and between the brain and body. There is currently no cure.

See these News Stories featuring the MADSEN Chariot and the St. George Marathon: with ABC4 and the St. George Spectrum


Jared and Danny embrace at the end of the race, thrilled that the MADSEN Chariot was in one piece!

Jared Builds Custom MADSEN "Chariot" to Carry Brother in Marathon

Jared Madsen's latest project is a custom MADSEN disability "chariot", to take Lisa's brother Brian - who has multiple sclerosis - to the finish line of the St. George Marathon on October 5, 2019. Brian was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis at the age of 14 and has lived with this progressive illness for 34 years. It will be Brian's first marathon ever, pushed by brother Danny Connolly.
Stay tuned!
