Josh’s Drive for Success

Hey there, My name is Josh Pedersen.

I am 19 and was born with Spina Bifida. Three years ago I had a life-impacting surgery that resulted in me becoming paralyzed and I will have to use a wheelchair for the rest of my life.

I am raising money so that I can purchase a handicap-adapted vehicle. I am looking for a vehicle that is no older then 2012 due to reliability and maintenance.

Having my own vehicle will give me the freedom to be able to attend a community college, get to my doctor appointments and pursue getting a job. Oh, yea, and ask a girl out for a date, (kidding not kidding).

Now that I have completed my drivers Ed I’ll need a vehicle to practice in.

The reason that I need $4,000 is to cover the costs: vehicle purchase, licence and registration; 1 year in Prepaid Insurance. All donations will be kept in a separate account until time of vehicle purchase.

I’ll will be getting my drivers license on June 26th.

I am eternally grateful for any contributions made, no matter how small .
