Cerebral Palsy Foundation celebrates renovation of its wheelchair modification clinic

The Cerebral Palsy Research Foundation on Friday celebrated its successful drive to renovate its wheelchair modification clinic with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

The $670,100 capital campaign allowed the nonprofit group to create a more family-friendly environment, add storage and create space for its exercise and wellness program, according to a news release from the group.

Staff at the center build wheelchairs to meet individual clients’ needs.

“This campaign has been another example of the generous support and ongoing dedication of our donors and their desire to improve the lives of people with disabilities,” Jennifer Knight, CPRF development director, said in a statement. “The renovations will allow those we serve to receive services of the highest caliber in an inviting and comfortable environment.”

The campaign exceeded the original fundraising goal of $605,000, and construction began in 2013.
