Spinal Cord Injury Awareness Month

BACKBONES will be hosting a Scavenger Hunt in Chicago in honor of SCI Awareness Month. Groups will be required to have at least one person using a wheelchair for the duration of the hunt (if no one in the group is a wheelchair user, we will provide a wheelchair) with the purpose of educating people on SCI. In addition, all clues will be SCI or disability related. after-words is pleased to participate in this event by welcoming scavenger hunters on the afternoon of September 29th.
