Quinnipiac University hosts ‘Go Baby Go’

HAMDEN, Conn. (WTNH) — Quinnipiac University saw a group of people come together Sunday to make the lives of young children a little easier. It’s all part of an event called ‘Go Baby Go.’ The goal is to make modified cars for children who have mobility limitations.

A graduate of the university lost her 9-month-old son to a rare form of cancer, so her former classmates organized a fundraiser and donated the money to the physical therapy program at QU. The money is being used to help customize the cars to help kids get around and play.

“So this gives children with mobility limitations those same opportunities to develop those skills and just have a good time,” said Michelle Broggi.

“I think it’s an incredible feeling to know that something so tragic is able to bring joy to other children,” said Jana Pogers.

‘Go Baby Go’ was created a few years ago at the University of Delaware by a physical therapy professor.
