Go Baby Go Garage
Welcome to the Marymount University
Go Baby Go Garage
In 2006, Dr Cole Galloway and Sunil Agrawal, from the University of Delaware, launched a movement to provide mobility to kids who are having trouble moving on their own. Cole began adapting toy ride-on cars to allow children to experience the freedom of being able to move around on their own. With some simple re-engineering the first Go Baby Go! car was produced and mobility was unleashed for the young benefactor.
Go baby Go! transforms the lives of children with mobility challenges by providing adapted battery powered cars and 4-wheelers to help these kids move in their environment ... just like other kids do.
At Marymount, the Doctor of Physical therapy students and faculty have opened up the Go Baby Go Garage and they have been building cars to transform lives since 2014. The team has built cars for patients in the Northern Virginia area and also was the first to build cars for patients in Costa Rica.

Go Baby Go! "Build and Grow" Events
Our Build and Grow events are multi-faceted events that bring together ALL members of the community: families, healthcare providers, policy makers, legislators, local businesses, civic organizations, volunteer groups, and corporate partners. During the event, participants share information, build sustainable plans, and build vehicles for children to “drive home” that day.

One of our attendees wrote this piece
for their blog which captures the essence of the Build and Grow event.
Ongoing Car Builds
We will be continuing to build cars for special children and will be working with our clinical partners in the Arlington area to identify and assess patients who would benefit from a new car. If you are interested in talking about receiving a car for your chid, please drop us an email or call us at the number below.
