Jimi Hendrix once said, “Music is magic, magic is life.” For Savannah, SOLIDWORKS’ newest Magic Wheelchair kiddo, life and music are both pretty magical.
For the fourth time, SOLIDWORKS and the 3DEXPERIENCE Lab are partnering with the non-profit Magic Wheelchair to create an epic costume for a kiddo in a wheelchair. This year, the build team is hitting the stage with a costume that really pops!
Savannah is a joyful, laid back (but feisty!) 11-year-old girl with beautiful brown eyes, an infectious smile, and a sweet spirit that shines through to everyone who meets her. She has an extremely rare condition called Ogden Syndrome, a randomly occurring genetic mutation that affects less than 100 people worldwide, and there are less than 50 children with her specific mutation.
Savannah has a complex medical history: she had a stroke at birth, which led to hydrocephalus. She has cortical cerebral visual impairment, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, and is non-verbal, non-ambulatory, and legally blind.
SOLIDWORKS is working hard to make Savannah the most incredible costume ever and help the non-profit Magic Wheelchair achieve its goal of providing kids in wheelchairs with epic costumes and experiences. SOLIDWORKS and the 3DEXPERIENCE Lab are funding Savannah’s costume build in its entirety, but we invite our readers to support Magic Wheelchair in Savannah’s name! If you visit her classy.org page, you can donate directly to Magic Wheelchair and help support them and all the lives they touch with their great work.
