2018 Year’s 50/50 Fundraiser:

CDDA 50/50 Draw Fundraiser for: An Accessible Van for Gage

Gage was born with spina bifida and hydrocephalus. Spina bifida is a neural tube defect that occurs in utero, and causes permanent damage to the nerves in the spine. This affects everyone differently, but for Gage, the most obvious challenge is paralysis in his legs. Gage has been a full time wheelchair user since age 2! Gage is currently in need of an accessible van so the CDDA donated all proceeds from this year’s 50/50 draw to Gage.

If you would like to further assist Gage in getting his Accessible Van please donate through the following website:  https://www.gofundme.com/avanforgage
