How Long have you been riding motorcycles –I have been riding Arizona every week since I turned 3 years old & Barley my Chocolate Labrador every once in a while.

When did you get your motorcycle  license – I don’t have one yet, but I am getting a GoBabyGO car from Oregon State this Summer.

Other Gear on trip – toys, my favorite show Little Einstein’s, my piano

Hometown –Mammoth Lakes, California

Where do you live – Mammoth Lakes, Ca. but this summer, I will live in San Rafael, Ca. for a month of intensive therapy, and then I will live in Santa Rosa for 5 weeks going to Boost Summer Camp. After that I’m sure I will have to go down to Children’s Hospital Orange County to see my doctors. I’m hoping my Mama will take me to Disneyland after all my appointments or the Aquarium.

What made you decide to go on this trip – I want to find my feet to dance and my voice to sing.

What are you most looking forward to on this trip – Seeing new places, making new friends, & finding some inclusive playgrounds where I can play with kids of all abilities.

Likes – Music, giving kisses, smiling, laughing, riding Arizona & snuggling.

Dislikes – Needles for tests, non-inclusive playgrounds

What do you think will be the most challenging part –Trying to crawl, stand and move around by myself. But I will get there! Also, being away from my dad, Barley and my mountains.

Challenge –  I challenge the town of Mammoth Lakes to build an inclusive playground. I just want to be able to play with ALL my friends and not be left out. So Mammoth, Let’s GO GO GO!

Challenge Price donation  - I will play really hard all the time with all my friends. We will donate laughter, smiles and a generation of unbiased kids who will grow up playing together.

Parting thoughts – Stay safe Daddy and keep all my Uncle’s safe. I love you Mama! Thank you for making me all my special food, always coming with me to all my Dr’s appointments and therapies., but most of all your endless love for me. Thanks to everyone sending prayers, positive thoughts and energy my way. I feel it, and I will try my hardest. Miracles DO happen. Thanks everyone for sharing my story, my Daddy’s trip and for donating if you can.‘go-baby-go’-mobility-program-children-disabilities-expands-osu


*We have a wonderful opportunity to design and build a unique to Mammoth Lakes, wonderful, safe, and Inclusive playground that will meet the needs of ALL children.  Inclusive Playgrounds make a fundamental statement about how communities value play experiences for people of all ages and abilities. The park is there, the land is there, volunteers are ready, and funding has been set aside, work on the playground could start tomorrow.
