Philadelphia Eagles Build Motorized Cars for Kids with Disabilities
Our Philadelphia Eagles are doing their part in giving back this holiday season. The team partnered with the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia to help kids with disabilities get around.
According to CBS Philly, with the help and hard work of volunteers,on Monday they built small motorized cars at Lincoln Financial Field. This event was apart of the Go Baby Go! program which is a program that provides modified, ride-on cars to young children with disabilities so they can move around independently. Allowing kids free range to move on their own increases cognitive and behavioral skills. So the Eagles and the CHOP wanted to make sure kids in our community had that freedom this holiday season.
“We modified the cars so they can access them with a push pedal and this allows them to navigate their environment independently without the assistance of others,” Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Physical Therapist Kristen Lincul said.
