GoodNews: Custom Halloween Costumes for Wheelchairs

16-year-old Alex Hayes has trouble dressing up for Halloween because she’s in a wheelchair.  A team of students and alumni from the Virginia Commonwealth University Schools of Medicine and Dentistry spent 8 weeks and 200 hours of work building a costume for Alex. She loves farm animals. So, the team set up shopin a rental storage unit and started building a barn costume that could fit on top of the youngster’s wheelchair. It’s a 7 feet tall, 5 feet wide foam structure.

The students work with Magic Wheelchairs: a nonprofit that builds Halloween costumes for children in wheelchairs.
