Mobility rodeo set for Sept. 28 at Kansas Truck Mobility

The Mobility Rodeo, an event to raise awareness about the vehicles and equipment available to enhance mobility, is planned for Friday, Sept. 28, at Kansas Truck Mobility, 8846 W. Monroe Circle – two blocks south of Kellogg on South Tyler Road.

The rodeo has grown over the years and also includes a numbers of vendors who will have exhibits for those attending the event, said Maurice Linnens, president of the company, in a news release.

"At our Rodeo, you aren't directed to a website, told to call an 800 number, or wait for a return call," Linnens said in the release. "The answers are more immediate.  And you can actually test drive the equipment."

One of the features of the Mobility Rodeo is the DIY Everyday Solutions, which are ideas submitted by customers of Kansas Truck Mobility to make living independently easier. Linnens said ideas from all years will be displayed for people to copy and take home. The winner of this year's Everyday Solution contest will be announced at noon.

The rodeo starts at 10 a.m. and ends at 7 p.m. and includes 22 exhibitors.  For more information, go to
