Saturday was a great morning to get out and wheel along the Rock River for a good cause. It was the 16th Annual Wheelathon, an event to raise awareness about the challenges and obstacles faced by Americans who use wheelchairs.

Participated wheeled along a two-mile course in downtown Rockford. The event is organized by ramp, a group that helps local people with disabilities.

Each year thousands of dollars are raised from Wheelathon to support ramp and the Rockford Chariots wheelchair basketball team.
