Several members of the Toledo men's basketball program took some time out of their schedule on Wednesday to visit with students at the University of Toledo's Exceptional Extravaganza.
The Rockets signed autographs and posed for pictures at the event designed for students with disabilities.
The annual event originated in 2006 when a Washington Local School District teacher noticed many of her students with significant needs were not able to participate in several typical spring social events, such as prom.
Students participated in corn hole, basketball, arts and crafts, music, a DJ, and pizza for students.
The UT School of Interprofessional Teaming was the main sponsor of ExEx 2013, along with the Department of Early Childhood, Physical and Special Education in the Judith Herb College of Education.
The mission of the school is to prepare and guide professionals to engage in collaborative best practices and service to individuals with special needs and their families. The school receives support from the Herb endowment.
