The NDSU Freedom by Design Chapter held a 5k fundraiser Saturday and raised awareness of home accessibility issues.
The 5k Mobility for Mobility began at 10 a.m. in the Wallman Wellness Center parking lot and continued through NDSU campus. Registration for the event was $15, and proceeds went towards Freedom by Design’s next project.
The event also featured accessibility awareness activities, including an accessibility tour of several NDSU buildings.
Freedom by Design, a component of American Institute of Architecture Students, is a community service program that uses the talents of architecture and environmental design students to “radically impact the lives of people in their community through modest design and construction solutions,” according to the NDSU AIAS website.
The goal of Freedom by Design is to help individuals with physical, mental or financial needs live independently in the community.
