Registration is currently full for the June 10 GoBabyGo workshop presented by the Illinois Spina Bifida Association. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 773-444-0305 if you would like to be on the waiting list.
This program is generously sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of River Forest and Oak Park with support from other local Kiwanis Clubs.
Illinois families with children with spina bifida age 2-5 are eligible to receive a free, customized electric car for the child. Check out this video from last year to see the cars: http://abc7chicago.com/health/battery-cars-retrofitted-so-kids-with-spina-bifida-can-move-around/1450872/
There is a $40 deposit required to register and receive a car. The $40 will be refunded only if you attend the June 10 workshop to pick up the electric car. Tentative car pick-up time is between 11am-1pm. Gas cards will be available for Illinois families outside of Chicagoland.
If you cancel after registering your deposit will not be refunded, as custom equipment will have already been purchased for your child.
Space is limited and registration is available on a first come, first served basis.
In order to receive a car, the child must have:
Cognitive age of 12 months or greater
No severe visual disorder
Enthusiastic parent(s) with ability to supervise a child in a car.
Parents must also indicate what major mobility deficits the child may have in their upper and lower limbs.
Volunteer teams of engineers and physical therapists will use this information to purchase and install custom equipment for your child.
Register here for the June 10 GoBabyGo workshop. Limit 1 registration per family.
