“We don’t know who invented the earliest wheelchair, but we do know that not much changed in wheelchair fundamentals until hand-rims were introduced in 1881. And not much has changed since then – until now!” – Rowheels
Come try out the latest and greatest wheelchair technology designed by NASA Mechanical Engineer, Salim Nasser! Innovative Rowheels technology allows for users to pull on the hand rims instead of push, which helps protect the shoulders from overuse injuries. The Rowheels team will be introducing their newest wheelchair design and are excited to let you try! Make sure you do not miss this demonstration!

The International Cheer Union (ICU) has the progressive concept to develop a division within the sport of Cheer that would encourage athletes with and without disabilities to compete together through Para Cheer. The Midwest Para Cheer team was initiated in 2018 and marked the start of uniting athletes from various backgrounds together to compete in Cheer. Participating in a competitive sport alongside athletes with and without disabilities has positive opportunities for personal growth, celebrating differences, and inspiring tolerance and compassion. Make sure to watch the Midwest Para Cheer team perform at “halftime” between track and field events! Take a moment to check out their booth next to the athlete check-in table as well!
