Custom Wheelchair Costumes Raise Halloween Spirits!

For the third year in a row, the 101 Mobility team built custom wheelchair costumes for the special needs class at Codington Elementary School in Wilmington, NC! From a dazzling cupcake to a fierce Red Baron costume, the kids flaunted their transformation in a school-wide parade with parents, families, teachers, the media, and the entire student body. Check out photos of all of the costumes (and what a fun time we had!) below.

Wow! This Red Baron pilot and his (brother!) copilot are soaring through the parade crowd. We especially love the hat and goggles touch!

Sierra as Elsa

Surprise! Elsa and Olaf from the hit Disney flick Frozen stopped by in their glamorous icy carriage. Sierra’s smile says it all!

Codington Elementary teachers and students alike were ecstatic and glowing as they made their way around the area to celebrate with families, friends, and coworkers.

Michael braved the harsh seawater and showed up in this dashing Shark Cage–complete with a creature right on top. Way to go Michael!
