The Freightliner Cascadia Tractor donated to Paralyzed Veterans of America by Freightliner Trucks, was sold for $70,000 at Sunday’s Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Ariz., with all proceeds benefitting Paralyzed Veterans of America.

“We’re so grateful to Freightliner for this generous donation to our organization and for supporting our nation’s veterans,” said Bill Lawson, national president of Paralyzed Veterans of America. “These funds will help us continue providing free vital programs and services to veterans and their families.”

The 2010 Freightliner Cascadia Tractor was custom painted to illustrate the support of both Freightliner and Paralyzed Veterans of America’s dedication to the military and our nation’s veterans.

Paralyzed Veterans of America is a congressionally chartered veterans service organization founded in 1946 that has developed a unique expertise on a wide variety of issues involving the special needs of its members — veterans of the armed forces who have experience spinal cord injury or dysfunction.
