The annual Iowa State Snowmobile Association’s spina bifida event was held Sunday, Jan. 12, at the Huxley 3C’s community center. Families who have been impacted by spina bifida were treated to a meal and crafts, along with rides around town on Utility Task Vehicles (UTVs). Participants also had the chance to play wheelchair basketball in the 3C’s gym. Approximately 125 people attended the event, according to Sherri TeKippe, chair of the Spinda Bifida Association of Iowa.
