disABILITY Day!

Marist High School Chicago will be the venue for the third annual Disability Day on Saturday, July 14, from 3 PM to 7 PM. The event is hosted by Disability Defenders, an organization established by young Marist alumni that is designed to break down barriers in society to make the world a better place. 

The goal of Disability Day is to promote acceptance and awareness for those with physical and mental developmental disabilities. 

Activities will be held in Marist's three gymnasiums and cafeteria and will include games, food, and live music. All attendees must register in advance via email (disabilitydefenders@gmail.com). All attendees must be accompanied by an adult chaperone for the entire event. 

The group looks forward to a wonderful day celebrating everyone's abilities! #WeAreParkLawn #DisabilityDefenders #DisabilityDay2018#ddawareness18
