CAMBRIA (WKOW) -- For most teenagers, getting a driver's license is the first big step to freedom.
But for one local teen, it's not so simple.
17-year-old Cody Keip was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy when he was just two years old.
He earned his driver's license in April, but without a specialized vehicle to accommodate his wheelchair, that independence is harder to come by.
A junior at Cambria-Friesland High School, Cody lives in Cambria with his parents, Joe and Erica, and his younger brother Jacob.
They're holding a fundraiser Saturday to help raise money to buy Cody that vehicle.
There's a golf outing at Kestrel Ridge Golf Course in Columbus.
It begins at 10 a.m. Saturday.
The cost is $70 per person and includes prizes at different holes and a raffle.
Afterward there will be a pig roast and dance at the Cambria Fire Department Community Center.
It costs $10 per person or $30 per family.
Doors open at 4 p.m., dinner is served at 5 p.m. and the dance runs from 7-11 p.m.
Those unable to attend who still wish to help, could send donations to Cody Keip Benefit, PO Box 75, Cambria, WI 53923.
