Isaiah's New Ride

If it has a motor 13 year-old Isaiah wants to know how fast it goes. But the South Jersey teenager, who suffers from cerebral palsy, needs your help to get a ride of his own.

The purchase of an accessible van will allow Isaiah to more easily travel with his large motorized wheelchair and be more independent. He could ride alongside his mom and dad at the grocery store or explore the racetrack with his grand-pop instead of being pushed around in a stroller.

If you find it in your heart to donate please know the funds will 100 percent go toward the cost of the van. The state of New Jersey will pick up a majority of the $70,000 price tag for the new van and handicap accessible modifications, but as part of the program Isaiah’s family needs to raise about $20,000 upfront. The money will cover the down payment and the cost of monthly payments for a year until the state funding starts.

Thank you in advance for your donations. By working together we can get Isaiah his new ride and the independence he deserves.
