Plymouth resident crowned Ms. Wheelchair Wisconsin

The Ms. Wheelchair Wisconsin 2017 Pageant was held in Menomonie, Wisconsin on Saturday, February 4, 2017 and judges crowned Plymouth resident Myranda Gereau as the new titleholder. Autumn Neugent of Madison was the first runner up in the pageant.

Ms. Wheelchair Wisconsin 2017,Myranda Gereau, has a form of Muscular Dystrophy, diagnosed as Bethlehem Myopathy, a rare neuromuscular disease and as a result she uses an electric wheelchair and a vent to facilitate her decreased lung function. At the young age of 21, Ms.Gereau has already been very active as state ambassador for MDA, participated as a model in the “This is How We Roll” fashion show, was an advocate at the Wisconsin Capital to address the need for ongoing therapy for people with disabilities and she also attends UW-Sheboygan and much more. She lives in Plymouth with her supportive parents and her fun-loving, helpful teenage sister, Allie. Myranda plans to promote her platform of “We Are Able” by showing that people with disabilities can do a lot of things, even if it’s a bit different from the able-bodied community she has already set up a YouTube channel to promote her platform.

Unlike traditional beauty pageants, Ms. Wheelchair Wisconsin is not a contest to select the most attractive individual. It is instead a competition based on advocacy, achievement, and communication for women who just happen to use a wheelchairs. Myranda will represent people with disabilities in Wisconsin and speak about her platform as she makes appearances around the state during the year of her reign. The next step for Ms. Wheelchair Wisconsin 2017 is to do fundraising for her trip to the Ms. Wheelchair America pageant to compete at the national level. The Ms. Wheelchair America 2018 Pageant will be held in Erie, Pennsylvania from August 14-20, 2017; Ms. Gereau will appreciate your support as she raises her funds to pay for her way to the national pageant.
