Contacts In Your Area

GoBabyGo! Nation

We are excited to announce that the ride-on program at UD is expanding nationally and globally. The list below contains contact information for people who are interested in helping to build cars for children in their communities and/or starting their own local GoBabyGo programs. Also, a few of them have already started local programs and want others to participate. Although the individuals have varying backgrounds and experiences, they share one common goal—getting our kiddos mobile!

The purpose of the list on this page is to connect people in different areas who are interested in GoBabyGo. If you need a car or you want to help a community GBG effort in other ways, we encourage you to reach out to your local contact person. Note that the individuals on this list are NOT responsible for starting their own program or taking requests for modifying cars, but they will attempt to organize the emails they receive, put together a team, and build a local GBG community. If you’re interested in starting a program in your community, please contact us at, and we’ll add your contact information to the list.
