El Centro College in Dallas is holding their annual “Weaving Together Community | Disability Awareness Day” and Wheelchair Basketball Game this Wednesday, October 21. Activities are planned from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at all campuses.
The DisAbility Awareness Day Fair starts off from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. when representatives from various agencies and businesses will be present, in the Main Campus Student Center, to give out information on services and mobility. Administrators, faculty, and staff will spend half the day simulating different disabilities for a hands-on feel for what it is like to be disabled and get around the campus.
The annual Wheelchair Basketball Game is from 1-3 p.m. in the ECC Gymnasium (C-220). Selected players from El Centro Staff will be shooting hoops against the Dallas Police Department team.
ACG Medical Supply is extremely proud to, once again, provide six wheelchairs for the basketball game. This is a favorite part of the day and is sure to give encouragement – plus entertainment – on what it is like to play sports being wheelchair bound.
The main El Centro College campus is located at 801 Main Street in Dallas. For information on how you can help or attending the activities, contact ECC DisAbility Services at 214-860-2411.
