“This is my son Gage. He suffers from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. We’ve been in need of a mobility vehicle for a while now. Unfortunately, Gage has declined in strength in the last year and needs assistance getting around. As he gets heavier, it is harder to place him in a vehicle without hurting him or myself. He does have a power chair now, and this vehicle would be a Blessing for Our Family & would help Gage to stay as independent as he can for as long as he is able. Thank You in Advance for All Votes!”

So, how can you help Gage get this new mobility vehicle he desperately needs? Simply click HERE and give him a vote. That’s all you have to do. Share this on your Facebook page and Twitter feeds as well to help get the word out so we make sure he wins!
