Founded in 1970 in St. Louis by Max and Colleen Starkloff, Paraquad is one of the oldest non-residential Centers for Independent Living in the country. Paraquad’s guiding principle is to advance the independent living philosophy. They look toward an integrated community in which people with disabilities are valued and participate in all aspects of society. They strive to make St. Louis more accessible for all people. Your donation supports people with all types of disabilities.
Paraquad was KMOV’s 4 Degree Guarantee Charities in July of 2014. Chief Meteorologist Steve Templeton was 96% accurate in his forecast. KMOV raised $1,200.00 plus the Cardinal Care’s match which totals the donation to $2,400 for the organization. To make a donation or find out how you can get involved in the cause, click here.
