GoBabyGo

Variety Tent 20 was proud to sponsor the first GoBabyGo project in the Midsouth, providing ten (10) physically disabled children with mobility.

GoBabyGo was created a decade ago by Dr. Cole Galloway, neuroscientist and Physical Therapist at the University of Delaware to build battery powdered toy cars for young children with physical disabilities with mobility issues. Each car is modified specifically for the child’s individual needs. Physical therapy students at The University of Tennessee Health Sciences Center, in collaboration with engineer students at the University of Memphis worked with families to personalize every car and work with each child every step of the way. We were invited to attend the celebration the day the children received their cars. It was pure joy to watch the children experience mobility with family and friends around. With the help of Variety, UT is planning to increase the number of children they help.

GoBabyGo is now working its way around the world through grassroots workshops with over 40 GoBabyGo sites in the United States and overseas. Tent 20 was honored to be a part of such an exciting project and plan to be involved for many years.
