My grade 7 and 8 students and I are of a global movement called Go Baby Go. This project began at the University of Delaware as its founder, Dr. Cole Galloway realized that there are no motorized wheelchairs for children under 3. We buy battery operated ride on cars and with the help of an electrician and occupational therapists, we modify them for children with mobility issues. The cars are adapted to the specific needs of each recipient. To date we have built 5 cars at no cost to the families.
This year we are hoping to form a partnership with Grandview Children’s hospital to get more children moving.
