Orangevale man invents 'coolest' wheelchair


Taking risks and living life to the extreme hasn't changed for Trevor Snowden. The only difference - he's doing it in a wheelchair.

"In a lot of aspects, the life I led as an able bodied person, being fast, wild, obnoxious -- I became humbled," Snowden explained.

Snowden was a hot-shot snowboarder until he got injured during a competition in 1997.

"I overshot my landing and I broke my T12 vertebrae," Snowden said.

He suddenly found himself paralyzed from the waist down. As someone who lived without limits, he wasn't happy with any wheelchairs on the market.

"There's no freedom in it, most of the products that exist," Snowden said.

So he invented Trevair, a lightweight manual wheelchair with suspension. For the more daring, he also made an add-on electric scooter with a throttle.

Dinner Fundraiser to Support Feed My Starving Children

Dinner Fundraiser to Support Feed My Starving Children

A local effort to pack hundreds of thousands of meals for malnourished children around the world is holding its annual major fundraiser to help pay for the meals that will be packed.

The special dinner, to be held Sept. 12 with catering donated by Randy Peters Catering and Event Planning, will benefit the 5th Annual Feed My Starving Children MobilePack.

All of the proceeds of the fundraiser will help pay for the meals to be packed during the non-profit Feed My Starving Children MobilePack event, scheduled for Oct. 23 to 25 at William Jessup University. In the first four years, the MobilePacks have packed more than 1.8 million meals.

Randy and Lisa Peters, owners of Randy Peters Catering & Event Planning, are donating all the food and their service for the event – meaning every dollar raised will go toward paying for meals for the MobilePack.
