Disability Awareness Day to focus on Recreation without Barriers

“Recreation without Barriers” is the theme for Disability Awareness Day at Sacramento State on Wednesday, April 23, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in University Union Ballroom II. The event will feature information about and demonstrations of sports and recreational opportunities available for all people, including those with disabilities. The event is free and open to the public.

The featured guest is famed Paralympics silver medalist and handcycle designer Alejandro Albor. He will give a lecture and provide a demonstration of handcycling—bicycling by hand rather than leg power—beginning at 11 a.m. in University Union ballroom II.

The event is intended to provide information about recreational opportunities available to disabled and other people, and to offer inspiration and highlight the importance of perseverance, says Melissa Repa, co-director of Services to Students with Disabilities.

The event is coordinated by Recreation, Parks, and Tourism Administration students, Services to Students with Disabilities, and TRIO Student Support Services Program, in collaboration with other campus and community resources including Veterans’ Affairs and Therapeutic Recreation.

Sign language will be available. For more information, or to request reasonable accommodations, contact Services to Students with Disabilities at (916) 278-6156. For media assistance, contact Sacramento State’s Public Affairs office at (916) 278-6156.
