Help Us Give Julien the Gift of Mobility

Julien is the youngest of 5, typically-abled, siblings.  He is living with quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy that prevents him from using his STRONG desire to play with others and get around independently.

EagleForce, an award winning robotics team from Pleasant Grove High School in Elk Grove, CA is raising funds to modify a motorized ride-on-car that will give four year old Julien an opportunity for independent mobility.

With Julien's new set of wheels, he will be able to initiate movement on his own, which is a first for him as he relies on others for everything. His family looks forward to epic games of tag as well as seeing him "drive" himself to school. Donations will be used to cover the cost and customization of the vehicle. Your support will make a huge difference in the life of Julien and will teach the robotics students the value of using their engineering skills to help others in the community. 

EagleForce was inspired by the original Go Baby Go project. This project was founded by Professor Cole Galloway as part of a research project at the University of Delaware.  Mobility is essential at a young age; it’s how we learn to explore our world independently and socialize with our peers. Motor skills, communication, and cognition flourish when children get moving with customized ride-on cars! To learn more about the original project, please visit https://sites.udel.edu/gobabygo/.
