Pride Mobility welcomed two new members to its diverse team of brand advocates

DURYEA, Pennsylvania—Following a months-long nationwide search, Pride Mobility welcomed two new members to its diverse team of brand advocates.

Chris Carrino and Brooke Slick have been named winners of the Pride Roll Model contest and will represent the company as Pride Roll Models. The contest attracted nearly 100 applicants from across the United States.

Each winner receives a three-month paid Pride Roll Model agreement and their choice of a Jazzy Carbon power wheelchair or Go Go Travel Mobility series scooter.

Stephanie Woodward, brand ambassador coordinator at Pride Mobility, expressed her enthusiasm for the newest additions to the team.

"We are thrilled to welcome Chris and Brooke to the Pride family," Woodward said. "This nationwide search has brought us two outstanding individuals who not only embrace the capabilities of our products but also share our commitment to fostering connection and inclusivity. We believe in the power of authentic voices, and as Pride Roll Models, Chris and Brooke will play a crucial role in showcasing the transformative impact of Pride products. Their experiences will be shared through social media, blogs, and various outlets, showing others how they embrace a life full of possibilities."

Carrino is originally from Yonkers, New York and is a sports broadcaster with a wide range of professional experience. Most notably, he is the radio play-by-play voice of the NBA’s Brooklyn Nets, a position he’s held since 2002 and can be heard around the country calling NFL games for Compass Media Networks.

Carrino has a type of muscular dystrophy called FSHD, a genetic disorder that leads to progressive muscle weakness and decreased functional capacity. He was diagnosed while attending Fordham University, from which he graduated in 1992. Eventually, Carrino relied on the Jazzy Carbon to help him navigate his professional environments.

“Using a mobility device was once my greatest fear, and I spent years trying to outrun the chair,” Carrino said. “But what I realized was that these devices aren’t made to separate us from the world, rather, they are made to connect us to it. Showing this to the disability community is what I hope to accomplish by being a Pride Roll Model.”

Carrino established the Chris Carrino Foundation for FSHD in 2011, which is dedicated to the effort of eradicating the life-altering effects of the disease.

A native of New Enterprise, Pennsylvania, Slick is a podcast host, blogger and inventor. She is also a spirited advocate with multiple sclerosis, which Slick has lived with for two decades.

When researching mobility devices that could help her navigate her property, Slick was introduced to the Go Chair power wheelchair, which she has described as a “gamechanger.”

“I’m all about normalizing what mobility device use looks like in today’s world,” Slick said. “I want to share all the different ways that potential users could be utilizing mobility devices to live a life that’s way bigger than they could have imagined. I’m so grateful that as a Pride Roll Model, I’ll have the opportunity to bring some hope, independence, engagement and joy into the lives of those who didn’t know what they were missing."

As Pride Roll Models, Carrino and Slick will share their experiences with Pride products through social media, blogs and other outlets. They have received their new products and have begun their roles with Pride.
