Help Fund Buggies for Disabled Children


About This Cause

Our mission is simple.  

Stepping Stones for Stella raises money to provide children with disabilities the freedom to access the great outdoors through the use of our Buggies.

Who We Are:

Our charity was founded in honor of my 4 year old daughter Stella, who has Spastic Diplegia Cerebral Palsy. The original Buggy was designed and created by my dad, who saw how tough it was to take Stella to the beach.  Wheelchairs do not do well in rocky, sandy conditions so my dad created a lightweight, all terrain Buggy that can go anywhere.

Once I experienced how easy it was to take Stella to the beach, I just had to do something for others in need….so I created a charity: http://www.steppingstonesforstella.org/.  We raise money by running road races and give the buggies to needy families at no cost to the family.  Our buggy is on display at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital in Boston and we have an aggressive goal of 60 Buggies distributed by the end of 2014.  So far this year we have delivered 5 Buggies and we have 15 requests.   We’re running as many road races as we can to raise the necessary funds but we’re tired of running so much!  Please help us reach our goal of $25,000.  Each Buggy costs us about $400 with labor and materials.
