Wakefest benefits Cerebral Palsy patient

Posted: Updated:

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Dozens of wake borders were treading the Flint  for a big competition that benefits a little girl with Cerebral Palsy.

Wakefest was held at the Turner Field boat landing. Wake boarders in several categories competed.

Money raised will go towards six-year old Taylor Rumph. Proceeds will help pay for a special van that's already been purchased. It's designed to meet Taylor's needs.

"They have worked so hard on it," said Taylor's mom, Stephanie Rumph. "It's pretty awesome they're doing this for her. It's going to make me cry."

With seven months of planning, organizers hoped to raise somewhere around $3,500 for Taylor.
