Heroes assemble for Walk & Roll

The 13th annual Mayors Committee for People with Disabilities Walk and Roll was held earlier this month in downtown Spartanburg. More than 600 individuals marched one mile from Morgan Square to the Spartanburg Memorial Auditorium where a celebration that included all school districts was held.

This year's theme was "Empowering All: Embrace Your Super Hero" and a students were treated to presentations by teachers dressed as Wonder Woman, Batman, and the Hulk. Many other teachers, also dressed as superheroes, mingled with students in the audience.
