The Robbie Foundation (RF) is a not-for-profit organization that was founded on behalf of a boy living with cerebral palsy. Robbie’s disability is quite severe in that he is totally dependent on others for all his daily living needs. Robbie has overcome all odds thus far in life and has a very strong “will” in every aspect of his being. In lieu of all that he has accomplished for himself, he expresses an interest and eagerness to help others. The goal of Robbie Foundation is to see the world brought to children who are unable to explore it on their own.

*Developmental disabilities are a diverse group of severe chronic conditions that are due to mental and/or physical impairments. People with developmental disabilities have problems with major life activities such as language, mobility, learning, self-help, and independent living. Developmental disabilities begin anytime during development up to 22 years of age and usually last throughout a person’s lifetime.
