Archer's University of Texas Student Challenge

About Archer's University of Texas Student Challenge

I challenge you to recognize how un-flat the world really is. Trade your feet for wheels and try to navigate your world from a wheelchair. We will provide the wheelchair and the transformative experience. You bring an open mind, and a willingness to try something amazing. 

We will be in front of PCL Library from 8:00AM to 5:00PM on Wednesday, October 17th., with 100 wheelchairs. You can pick-up and return your wheelchair at any time between 8:00AM and 5:00PM based on wheelchair availability on a first come basis.

You'll get fitted into a wheelchair by a professional, pick up your goody bag, t-shirt, and hat, and take off in the wheelchair. Attend classes, go to study sessions, roll around campus, have lunch, go to your dorm room. When you are done, return the wheelchair where you started. Take lots of photos or video and tag them with #ArchersChallenge.

There is just one rule: be safe. This isn't a ride in an amusement park. You are responsible for your safety.

If you signed up to volunteer, just show up for your time slot and I'll explain everything. 

Remember - you are my ambassador when you are in a wheelchair. 

Registration is open to all UT students, staff, and faculty.
