Corvette club delivery of push cars. The Corvette Club generously donated the push cars and assembled the cars to function as a holder for an IV pole. The cars will be equipped with poles to hold intravenous bags for fluids or medication as the child plays or moves to another part of the hospital. "The ride-on push cars will make it fun and easier to move around as our goal for pediatric patients is to take their minds off of their illness, injury or disease," said Tammy Else, child life specialist, Lutheran Children's Hospital.
