Archer Hadley challenges each of us bipeds 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. Together, we will raise awareness and funds.

One hundred people will join Archer Hadley and Mayor Steve Adler at the newly renovated Republic Square in downtown Austin at 8:00 a.m. Participants will be fitted for manual wheelchairs and then they will roll off to spend their day at work, or experience downtown Austin. All chairs will be returned by 1:00 p.m. Downtown businesses and organizations like WPEngine, GSD&M, Bank of America, City Hall, and many others will be represented.
