We have to raise $90,000+ in the next 90 days to finish all the cars and other assistive devices we are building to get our kids racing on Delivery Day - June 3, 2023. The KC Exotics & Supercars Club plus their friends at the Ferrari Club, the Porsche Club, the BMW Club and the Corvette Club have banded together to put on a car show that you won't soon forget. They will bring their cool hot rods, and we will bring ours. Now, we just need you!
There will be up to 400 amazing hot rods to see. Vote for your favorites, enter the raffles and enjoy all the fun:
- Pink Taco will be serving up tasty treats.
- NASA Midwest is hosting a coffee booth.
- A DJ will amp up the fun.
- And, the Star Wars 501st Legion will provide entertainment.

Let's Give 50+ Kids The #Power2Play This Year!
It’s time to put the pedal to the metal and get our kids across the finish line this spring! 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, custom, electric cars and other assistive devices 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 our 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 $220,000 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 Vivian. Viv was two years old when we met her; she was a happy, healthy baby, doing all the things she should be doing, when she suddenly started losing motor skills. Soon, her parents learned that she has a degenerative condition that robbed her of the ability to walk, talk, etc. Having her own car gave Viv the freedom to explore on her own. Watch this video to see Viv at play.
