Wheel-A-Thon

  September 30th, 2014
The Wheel-A-Thon is an annual fundraiser to raise awareness for people with disabilities within our community. The Wheel-A-Thon is a timed 20 minute obstacle course where teams of 6-10 participants try to maneuver through the course as fast as possible in a wheel chair.
All donations benefit the MS Clinic (Multiple Sclerosis Clinic) and IMPACT program (Individualized Movement and Physical Activity for Children Today) on campus. The MS Clinic connects community members diagnosed with MS with student volunteers twice a week to work on an individualized exercise program. The IMPACT program matches local children with disabilities with OSU students who interact and lead the children in a variety of activities once a week.
