COTTONWOOD HEIGHTS — Students with disabilities enjoyed Thursday on the ice thanks to some generous high school students.
Students at the Kauri Sue Hamilton School, a center-based school for students with significant disabilities, participated in "Wheelchairz on Ice", which was created by Skyline High School students Deo and Marianne Newell. The service project gave the Hamilton School students the experience of ice skating at no cost to the school, the students or their families.
"Their faces light up with realizing that they're able to skate and to get on ice," said Skyline High student Nandina Deo. "It's just a completely new and different environment."
The Skyline Students raised more than $200 for Thursday's event and hope to get even more students out on the ice in the future.
