WHEELCHAIRS TO SPAACE! (and beyond)

Help us, help Darrin "eclipse" Duchennes Muscular Dystrophy.

Hello, and thank you for taking the time to look!

I am seeking to surprise Darrin and my girlfriend Valerie,
(Darrins' mom) with a trip to South Carolina to view the August 21st. Solar eclipse over the ocean!

( back up plans for weather or booking issues have planned for, so it may be another location)

All funds will be used for travel related costs, any remaining funds will go toward acquiring a new (used) van for his medical, et al, travel needs.

Backstory:

Darrins' mom Valerie also had a brother with this horrible disease, then had two sons with it as well, one of which is no longer with us. (r.i.p. collin) She has worked tirelessly 24 hours a day caring for her brother and two sons for DECADES with unwavering dedication.

Darrin has a budding interest in space related things, is a gaming/giraffe affecionado and a hilarious lil chap! And is extremely excited to do this!

Again thank you for considering this cause! We will post pics and any vids apon trip completion and you can follow us along the journey on the secret instagram I will upload to, as we progress through to totality of the eclipse!
