Each of the above students, faculty, staff and administrators, including President of Molloy College, Drew Bogner, participated in Wheeling the Way, using a wheelchair to get around campus. 


"This experience has taught me that whether you wheel or walk around, it does not change who you are and what you can do . . . just the way you can do it." 

~Andy Abberton, Student

"Participation in the event was probably one of the most worthwhile, eye-opening experiences in which I have been involved."  ~ David Sills, Faculty

"This was an extremely eye-opening experience for me. Having only worked with a few students who use wheelchairs, I feel I have a much better understanding of the challenges that are faced on a daily basis by those who use wheelchairs."  ~ Joe Weinstein, Administrator
