University of Mary students teamed up today to make cars for special needs kids.
The engineering students and physical therapy department combined their skills to help.
With the help of a 2 thousand dollar donation from Kupper Subaru, students created custom-made, tricked out and fully mobile cars.
Thanks to the project…five area children became more mobile. This was part of a service-learning assignment and the national Go Baby Go program.
“Well myself personally, I really wanna do pediatric therapy and so choosing this project what kind of, I don’t know, an easy guess for me since I wanted to work with the kids,” said Rebekah Horgan/Physical Therapy student at UMary.
The U Mary students allowed local pediatric therapists to chose the recipients.
