Wheelchair Costumes Lift Halloween Spirits!

Wilmington, NC, October 30, 2014 - Earlier this afternoon, members of 101 Mobility’s corporate office, teachers and students of Codington Elementary School, and friends and family gathered for the third annual Codington Halloween Wheelchair Costume Parade. At the beginning of September the design and technical departments of 101 Mobility coordinated with special needs educator Vanessa Bishop to build costumes that where custom fitted to each of her students’ assistive mobility devices.

The Halloween event is unique and met with heavy anticipation each year since these children rarely have the chance to dress up and steal the show. The entire school was present and many community members also joined in the festivities.

Codington Elementary School Principal Mr. Pfirman took a moment to reflect and said “We’re thrilled and excited to be a part of this and we hope the parade remains a tradition for years to come. This day is so special for them (the students) and for us as well.”

Vanessa Bishop the Lead Teacher for the Specially Designed Academics – Daily Living class at Codington was integral throughout the parade planning process and was beaming with pride as her students glided through the cheering crowd.

For more information regarding Vanessa’s work with these exceptional students please see our most recent blog post on the 101 Mobility Rotations Blog.
