OPENING DOORS

Linford Jensen struggles over boards in a wheelchair obstacle course this week at the University of Utah. Jensen and other able-bodied participants gained a better understanding of the problems facing handicapped people daily by riding through the course. Participants, aided by several U. student volunteers, were instructed to ride in a wheelchair while pushing a grocery cart, traveling up and down a ramp, moving through a curb filled with water and closing a door behind them. Three days of events connected with the fifth annual Barrier Awareness Day will conclude with an interfaith observance Saturday evening in the Salt Lake Tabernacle.
