Variety's "My Stroller" Program


Variety's "My Stroller" Program currently provides a Kid Kart Mighty Lite adaptive stroller to eligible kids with disabilities in 29 Pa. counties. Typically, a family must choose between having a wheelchair or adaptive stroller. So, as a wheelchair is more necessary, an adaptive stroller allows for easier "on-the-go" mobility and participation in daily activities and throughout the community. With an adaptive stroller, kids are no longer isolated and it has an immediate impact on their lives!
