Children’s Assistive Technology Service (C.A.T.S) is an organization out of Moneta, Virginia that distributes adaptive and mobility equipment to children with physical, neurological and developmental disabilities.
The devices that are distributed are often refurbished and made to be in peak condition for use for families and children.
Having the access to these devices helps children to participate fully in school, be more socially engaged and overall reach a higher level of independence.
C.A.T.S. is currently holding their biggest fundraiser of the year, Hallowheels.
Hallowheels features children’s creative, adaptive Halloween costumes that are built around their mobility equipment.
Photos of the contest participants are listed here and each vote is $1. This fundraiser will run until Saturday, Nov. 4.
