Schoolkids help a local child with Angelman Syndrome by building a new toy

Tags: 

Several school children of the Frontier Central School District in Hamburg, New York, have formed a group known as “Go Baby Go Pit Crew. Operation Gillie Mae,” the aim of which is to outfit a Power Wheel such that it accommodates Gillie Mae’s disability. Gillie Mae was born with Angelman Syndrome, a rare condition that results in delayed motor and speech development and seizures. The six-man crew is working to modify a Jeep Power Wheel for Gillie Mae, and plans to visit the Fisher Price headquarters to further refine their design with help from the pros.
