Company creates special Halloween costumes for kids in wheelchairs


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- This Halloween Wilmington's 101 Mobility teamed up with a special education class at Codington Elementary to celebrate the holiday.

Employees designed special costumes to fit the students' wheelchairs. The costumes included Mario and a Mario Cart, a DJ, a firefighter and fire truck and even Snow White and a princess.

"It's really gratifying to see how happy the children are to feel an integral part of the school on Halloween," Codington principal Budd Dingwall said.

The students showed off their costumes and took home the custom-made outfits after school for trick-or-treating tonight.

My son is Mario an this was

My son is Mario an this was really great for someone to care so much about our kids. What most kids take for granted and expect each year, our kids consider a treat. My son ha never been able to go trick or treating. Due to the difficulty of getting up and down stairs and manuvaring difficult areas. All we an say is Way To Go 101 Mobility
