The Only One Foundation, author and organizer of the very first Miss Wheelchair World contest, invites you to the Final Gala! The pageant takes place at Ursynów Arena in Warsaw, Pileckiego 122, at 19:00 CEST, UTC+2. 

 

Miss Wheelchair World is by no means an ordinary beauty contest. Rather than that, it stands for an international manifesto of women's rights, independence, self-fulfilment and self-esteem, regardless of their place of residence, motor abilities or social status. The principal idea behind Miss Wheelchair World is to change the image of people with disabilities, to overcome stereotypes and unfavourable perception, and to fight against discrimination, not only in Poland but also all over the world. The event is also meant to foster integration and exchange of information on the latest scientific and medical achievements.
