Injured Detective Receives Action Track Chair Thanks To Donations

By Shawn Chitnis

LITTLETON, Colo. (CBS4)– Family and friends celebrated Douglas County Sheriff’s  Detective Dan Brite’s recovery with the gift of an action track chair over the weekend.

The specialized wheelchair will help him be more mobile outside as he recovers from a shooting last September that injured him.

Adsit Strong and other charities raised the money to get him an Action Track Chair on loan. The organizations are aiming to get Brite his own permanent chair by the end of the month.

The non-profit was started by Denver Police Officer John Adsit after he was run over while on duty in 2014.

“I was given so much support through my incident that I don’t feel like I could ever pay enough forward for all the amazing things the community has done for me,” said Adsit.

Adsit found the Action Track Chair and thought it was the perfect thing Brite needed to get back outdoors until he can walk under his own power again.

The Adsit Strong organization helps first responders that was severely injured while on the job. More than $17,000 in donations helped to pay for the Action Track Chair. Other organizations like MC-1 also collected donations for Brite.
