Young children struggling with mobility given customized mini-cars to help them get around

KRDO

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- Friday, The Resource Exchange (TRE) hosted an adaptive car-building event at ERA Shields in Colorado Springs to help young children with disabilities.

During the GoBabyGo! event, children who normally can't move around on their own were fitted with customized miniature ride-on motorized cars designed to increase their mobility.

Teams of volunteers, therapists, and technicians came together to assemble the customized cars.

Four children were given the freedom to explore and go where they wanted to go for the first time.

People interested in sponsoring a future event can email juliewhite@tre.org or call 719-338-1718.

The last GoBabyGo! event in Colorado Springs was held in April.
