Let's Give 50 Kids the #Power2Play This Year!
It’s time to rev our engines for 2022! Thanks to you, we hit our 2021 target, giving 37 kids the #Power2Play. This year, let’s get 50 more kids with movement limitations racing!
Geeks for Kids is an initiative of LEARN, a small nonprofit with a big dream – to give kids with mobility challenges the gift of freedom and movement. With the help of volunteers and donors like you, we build kid-size electric cars for kids who otherwise can’t get around on their own. Join us in the campaign to get these kids racing!
Kids Are Waiting Right Now
96,000 Missouri and Kansas kids have disabilities, according to a 2012 study from Child Trends. Together, we can give those with movement limitations the #Power2Play! Local healthcare agencies are referring kids to us every day. Join the campaign to get those kids racing.
Our Fundraising Goal
To build 50 cars plus a new prototype vehicle for bigger kids and for indoor/outdoor use will cost more than $200,000 to build. Because we provide these cars to the kids and their families for FREE, we have to raise a lot of money to make it happen. Join us in the campaign to get kids with movement limitations racing.
Give a Kid Like Jerry a Hot Rod!
There are 500,000 American kids under the age of 5 with movement limitations - kids like Jerry, shown above. Jerry was four years old when we met him; he is a charming, sunny little boy who wanted desperately to play outside with his brothers, sisters and neighborhood friends. Because a car drove over him when he was two and broke his spine, he cannot walk; and, because of his age, his insurance would not provide him with a motorized wheelchair. So, he could only sit and watch the other kids play. Now, Jerry is zooming around his yard and neighborhood in the car we built, and his friends compete to ride with him.
