UCP’s “Halloween Without Limits” launches October 1!

United Cerebral Palsy is inviting Halloween revelers of all ages to enter our #Halloween Without Limits digital photo contest this October. No one should have to miss the fun of dressing up for Halloween because they have a disability which may not be accommodated by traditional costumes. Taking into account assistive technology such as wheelchairs and walkers or the sensory needs of children with Autism and Down syndrome can sometimes be a frustrating task. So, UCP is encouraging creativity by rewarding costumes designed to work specifically for the unique challenges faced by people with disabilities.
