Community rallies to replace stolen adaptive equipment
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- The community has responded after thieves stole equipment used by young patients at Children's Hospital Central California.
The theft happened over the weekend at a storage facility in Clovis. The hospital rents a unit there to store equipment used for its adaptive sports program.
The program provides free recreational activities to children and young adults with disabilities. Thieves got away with nearly 16-hundred dollars worth of property, including life jackets, and a modified wakeboard.
Wednesday, the hospital announced $5,000 have been donated to the program. The hospital says all the additional money will be used to expand the program.
