Hosted by Make Your Day Events with all proceeds to Steps for Reid- raising funds for Reid Lovett, a 3 year old boy with Cerebral Palsy. His CP affects his legs causing very tight muscles and therefore his ability to walk normally. Currently Reid can not walk unassisted and has a huge amount of therapy to help maintain and strengthen his muscles. There is limited funding for this therapy so the family has to cover the cost of most of Reid's therapies. Reid's parents Emma and Steven are trying to raise $150k+ to take Reid the USA to St Louis Childrens Hospital for SDR surgery that will assist with removing the tightness in the muscles in his legs permanently and give him a better chance at normal movement in his life. Donations are also most welcome.
